Wetlands International 2003 Annual Review
The Wetlands International Annual Review 2003 shows the project highlights of our Species, Inventory, Wise Use and Capacity Building programmes over the past year. It includes a “spotlight” on the cross-cutting African/Eurasian Migratory Waterbird Flyway Project that was approved last year and will start implementation in 2005. Throughout 2003 we continued our efforts to develop and implement globally applicable standards and procedures. The completion of the revised legal structure in The Netherlands was a major outcome and provides a platform for legal links to all Wetlands International’s offices. Furthermore, the Board of Directors met twice in 2003, working largely through a committee structure and is reviewing its own progress and operations. The annual review also features the recent highly successful Waterbirds Around the World conference, held in Edinburgh in April 2004.
