Second Meeting of African-Eurasian Migratory Landbirds Working Group

The location on the map is approximate!

The Second Meeting of African-Eurasian Migratory Landbirds Working Group will take place in Abidjan (Côte d’Ivoire) the 25-27 November 2015. This Working Group was established by Resolution 10.27 with the mandate of developing an Action Plan for African-Eurasian Landbird Migrants and their habitats throughout the flyway. The Action Plan was completed during a workshop held in Ghana in September 2012, back to back with the first meeting of the Working Group, and subsequently adopted at COP11 in Quito (Ecuador) in November 2014. Together with AEWA and the Raptors Memorandum of Understanding, the Landbirds Action Plan constitutes the trilogy of CMS avian instruments covering the African-Eurasian flyway.

The second meeting of the Working Group will discuss a long term Programme of Work for its future activities and will focus on the implementation of the Action Plan in West Africa, with a special emphasis on the problem of land use change and how this is affecting migratory landbirds and their habitars in the region.
