Cooperation to protect migratory waterbirds

A workshop has been held to help ensure the African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbird Agreement (AEWA) takes effect for countries situated along the Adriatic Flyway.


The Flyway is an important migration corridor running along the East coast of the Adriatic Sea for waterbirds migrating between Eastern Europe and North and sub-Saharan Africa. Twice a year, large numbers of waterbirds use the route to migrate between their breeding and wintering grounds.


Participants from eight states, including government representatives from Albania, Croatia and Slovenia attended the event, which was held from 13 to 15 September in the Croatian city of Samobor. Particular attention was given to involving civil society and NGOs from each country.


The workshop sessions took various forms, including discussions, group work and field trips. Participants practiced developing national AEWA implementation plans and simulated negotiating a draft resolution at a Meeting of the Parties.


A field trip to a Croatian energy station gave participants the opportunity to observe and experience practical conservation interventions. Participants also visited the Crna Mlaka fish pond - a site covered by the Ramsar Convention on wetlands- where they learned about management of the nature reserve and the co-existence of fish farming and waterbird conservation.


AEWA is administered by UN Environment and is the largest regional instrument of its kind concluded under the Convention on Migratory Species. The Agreement provides a framework for international cooperation on the conservation and management of migratory waterbird populations across the African-Eurasian Flyway. AEWA has set an example for flyway-based cooperation around the world.
