Djibril Diallo of Mauritania has been chosen to lead the steering committee of the CMB’s ‘’Conservation of migratory birds and their habitats along the West African coast” Project. He replaces Mamadou Saliou Diallo from Guinea. This was decided by the project’s 5th annual meeting of the steering committee recently held in Dakar, Senegal.
The election of Djibril Diallo from Mauritania to chair the steering committee of the CMB ‘’Conservation of migratory birds and their habitats along the coast of West Africa'' Project was endorsed during the 5th annual meeting that was recently organized in Dakar (Senegal).
Mr. Diallo takes over from Mamadou Saliou Diallo from Guinea who has served a one year term.
The new chairman of the steering committee expressed commitment to work towards a better involvement of all stakeholders in the conservation of species and their habitats in the sub-region. He pledged to keep learning from his colleagues and endeavor to end the dysfunctions observed in the past.
His predecessor was apologetic for failing to carry on the planned roadmap that was set up by the steering committee. Mamadou Saliou Diallo, head of Guinea Ecology acknowledged the fact that not everything in the work plan has been achieved. He then invited his young heir do better than him for the triumph of the CMB.
Highlights of the year 2013 achievements of the CMB and the summary financial report of the project were discussed.
The project was updated and priorities identified for the remaining timeline of the year 2014. The project for the conservation of migratory birds and their habitats along the West African coast will end in December 2014. CMB 2 project is tied up and submitted to donors.
Note that the 5th meeting of the CMB Steering Committee was held during the workshop on strengthening networks for the conservation of migratory birds and their habitats along the West African coast.
The Steering Committee is made of eleven (11) members including the Department of National Parks (DPN) and organizations such as Wetlands International, FIBA and BirdLife among others.
