Wageningen, 8 July 2008 - Wetlands International has compiled a report on the WOW Exchange Programme Planning Workshop which was held in Wageningen on 31 January and 1 February 2008. One of the planned outcomes (Outcome 3.3) of the WOW Project is to establish an Exchange Programme for waterbird and wetland conservation practitioners and other stakeholders for the African-Eurasian region.
Its aim is to target various stakeholder groups across the flyways such as technical site based staff (including those in project demonstration projects) and decision makers and to foster the exchange of information and lessons learned between these individuals and organisations within the project area.
