Nairobi / Bonn, 5 November 2009 - UNEP's Division of Global Environment Facility Coordination (UNEP/DGEF) and a number of leading organisations involved in the flyway-scale conservation of migratory birds have published a landmark issue paper entitled "The Experience of UNEP GEF and Partners in Flyway Conservation".
The paper provides an overview of the key lessons learned from both the WOW Project and the Siberian Crane Wetland Project - two flagship flyway initiatives currently being supported by UNEP GEF.
The paper illustrates how both projects have become a model internationally and in other regions, showing how the "Flyway Approach" can be put into practice. It is a demonstration of UNEP GEF's continued commitment to build international support for flyway conservation.
The paper has been sent to The Global Environment Facility’s (GEF) Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel (STAP) for review, in the hope that it will become a guidance document for the GEF Council and will lead to further investment in flyway conservation around the world.
