The Wings Over Wetlands (WOW) Project:
The Wings Over Wetlands (WOW) UNEP-GEF African-Eurasian Flyways Project has been funded by The GEF, the German Government, UNEP-AEWA and many other donors. The project has been a joint effort between UNEP-GEF, Wetlands International, BirdLife International, UNEP-AEWA, the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation, the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands, UNOPS, UNEP-WCMC and a range of other local partners along the African- Eurasian flyways.
The area covered by the initiative includes all 118 Range States of the UNEP-administered African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbird Agreement, covering all of Africa, all of Europe, south-west Asia (including the Middle East and Central Asian States), Greenland and the Canadian Archipelago.

Bonn, 26 October 2010 - The WOW Flyway Training Kit (FTK), a one-of-a-kind resource in flyway-scale conservation, is making quite an impact on some academic institutions in Africa and Eurasia. Originally intended to build professional capacity to plan, implement, monitor and engage in effective flyway-scale conservation of migratory waterbirds and wetland habitats, the modules are being used by some academic institutions as part of their own training programmes.
