Over 45 participants from 23 countries along the African-Eurasian Flyway attended the WOW Project Team Meeting in Wageningen, The Netherlands on 28 January -01 February 2008. The event brought together key international staff currently involved in the Wings Over Wetlands Project, giving them a chance to exchange latest information and to jointly present the project to the wider public.
During the public event, which lasted an entire day, the WOW Project team elucidated the “flyway approach” and complemented its presentation with a poster exhibition that exemplified different aspects of the project.
Among the highlights were presentations on the development of the Critical Sites Network Tool being developed under WOW, the Training and Capacity Building Component and presentations from the four WOW Regional Centres and Demonstration Sites. Representatives from Western and Central Africa, Eastern and Southern Africa, Central Asia and the Middle East also had the chance to present projects being carried out in their regions.
The meeting was a unique opportunity to intensify networks among the wider WOW Project Team and other individuals and institutions working together for flyway conservation of waterbirds in the Africa and Eurasia.
