Target Audience

This workshop under the AEWA Eurasian Spoonbill International Expert Group is open to network members and any participant with an interest in wetland conservation. It will be of relevance to staff from a variety of nature conservation organizations, including scientists, statutory agencies, NGOs, as well as volunteers and students, particularly:

  • Within the AEWA Eurasian Spoonbill International Expert Group (ESIEG);
  • Ornithologists studying waterbird populations;
  • Wetland Site Managers working on habitat restoration;
  • Staff working in outreach / public information functions – for example, awareness-raising and garnering support for wetland conservation;
  • Stakeholders in local communities.


The African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbird Agreement (AEWA) is an intergovernmental treaty dedicated to the conservation of migratory waterbirds and their habitats across Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia, Greenland and the Canadian Archipelago.

The workshop will provide a unique opportunity to strengthen connectivity between people involved in studying and managing wetlands for the conservation of spoonbills and associated waterbird populations. Our aim is to share information and build practical knowledge about drivers of population regulation and ways to improve management effectiveness in habitat restoration. A special emphasis will be put on enhancing capacity building within the network focusing on stakeholders from North African and Eastern Mediterranean countries.
