African-Eurasian Waterbird Monitoring Partnership

Countries along their flyways have a shared responsibility for sustainable management of their populations. Through the African-Eurasian Waterbird Monitoring Partnership, Wetlands International and partners support science-based decision-making to help countries meet their AEWA commitments to waterbird conservation.

Save Our Mangroves!

Wetlands International Africa and IUCN are combining their efforts within the PRCM to promote a wiser use of mangrove resources. The unique functions and values of mangroves sustain a high level of biological productivity which is extremely profitable to both animal species and human beings. This ecosystem, rich with species of flora and fauna, plays an important ecological and economic role for countries along the West African coast.

Striking a Balance

This leaflet promotes the Striking a Balance (SAB) approach, which seeks to address the widespread and growing pressures on wetlands in Africa from agricultural and other uses. It focuses on the way in which natural resources need to be valued by communities if they are to be used sustainably. In this way the value obtained from the wetland motivates communities to undertake management practices which will enhance and sustain it. However, such uses have to be based on a sound understanding of how wetlands function, especially the functional landscape approach, and how they should be managed through community institutions.

Facts about violated World Bank and African Development Bank Policies in the controversial Bujagali Project

The World Bank and African Development Bank and other International Finance Institutions (IFIs) are trying to help Uganda develop additional power generation capacity to meet the growing electricity demand, which has exerted strain on the existing power generation capacity that has resulted in severe loading shedding and power-cuts, which in turn is retarding economic growth and negatively affecting natural resources use and management. Government’s fixation on the development of a controversial Bujagali hydropower dam at the expense of alternative and better energy options has aggravated the energy crisis in the country.

Récemment nous avons édité le rapport des DOEA 1998 que vous aurez sous peu. Ce retard est lié au fait que nous somme dans une période de transition du programme.
