  • 1.  
  • 2. The Flyway Training Kit An Innovative Tool for Flyway Conservation in the African–Eurasian Region CBD SBSTTA Side Event Nairobi 14 th May
  • 3. Critical links between WOW & CBD Strategic Plan Post 2010 targets
    • #1 – aware of biodiversity value and steps to protect it
    • #2 – biodiversity value integrated into national accounts, strategies, planning
    • #11 – establishment of flyway networks of protected areas and wider landscape inter alia should cover all critical breeding, staging, non-breeding sites for waterbirds
    • #12 – extinction of threatened species has been prevented
    • #18 – traditional knowledge for biodiversity management
    • #19 – knowledge of biodiversity, value and functioning are improved and shared
    • # 20 – national capacity to implement the CBD increased
    • Significant contribution to POW for Protected Areas,
    • Inland Waters, and Marine and Coastal biodiversity
  • 4.
    • the WOW Flyway Training Kit
    • A resource tool to support
    • ‘ the flyway conservation approach’
    • focused on the conservation and sustainable use of migratory waterbirds and their wetland habitats
  • 5. WOW Flyway Training Modules
    • Each module contains:
    • Example-rich text
    • Case studies
    • Exercises
    • Powerpoint Presentations
    • Supporting documents
    • Understanding the flyway approach
    • Applying the flyway approach
    • Communicating the flyway approach
  • 6. Target groups
    • International organisations
    • National governments
    • Site manager s
    • Training Institutions
    • NGOs
  • 7. the flyway consultative approach
    • A thoroughly consultative process resulted in a set of modules with significant inputs from a wide range of experts and target user groups (regional training boards)
    • Relation and reference to key existing training materials
    • The process stimulated a wide ownership of the modules
    • It provided a solid platform for promoting synergies and collaboration by partners across the relevant sub-regions
    • Laid the foundations for sub-regional support teams for the “regional adaptation” and implementation of the modules
  • 8. M1- Understanding the flyway approach to conservation
    • M1 learning objectives
    • Participants will understand:
    • the main characteristics of migration and flyways,
    • the roles of key sites in supporting the different life stages of migratory waterbirds,
    • The diverse threats along the flyways.
  • 9. M2 - Applying the flyway approach to conservation
    • M2 learning objectives
    • Through gaining a broad understanding of different conservation actions relevant to the flyway approach, participants will be able to:
    • apply flyway conservation practice,
    • influence policies
    • and strengthen networks.
  • 10. M3 - Communicating the flyway approach to conservation
    • M3 learning objective
    • By the end of Module 3 delivered during a ‘flyway training workshop’ all participants should:
    • understand what is needed to communicate the flyway approach
    • are able to review, adapt and develop training modules on the flyway approach to conservation.
  • 11. Textbook 560 pages
  • 12. Powerpoints 34 ready to use slideshows
  • 13. Exercises and case studies
  • 14. Workshop Programme
  • 15. Support material
  • 16. Regional adaptation
    • Examples from all regions included in the Generic Modules
      • Ensure flyway approach
      • Ensure quality across the regions
    • Modules have been translated in to:
      • Russian (WOW own funds)
      • French (Ramsar support)
      • Arabic [ongoing] (WetCap)
  • 17. Regional implementation
    • Middle East
    • Amman & Azraq, Jordan - August 10th – 16th , 2009
    • RSCN of Jordan
    • 23 participants
    • 11 countries
  • 18. Regional implementation
    • West Africa
    • Limbe, Cameroon from 2-10 November 2009
    • Garoua Wildlife School in Cameroon
    • 20 participants - 12 countries
    • Funded also by USFWS
  • 19. The Future
    • Innovative and practical tools were developed, but much more needs to be done
    • CHALLENGES
    • Support a widespread adoption of the CSN tool and Training Kit
    • Continue to build capacity at all levels
    • Continue to improve and upgrade the underlying data for the CSN (field survey work + training)
