International Single Species Action Plans
International Single Species Action Plans (ISSAPs) are the key instrument developed under AEWA for the purpose of implementing coordinated measures to restore migratory waterbird species to a favourable conservation status. International cooperation among the species’ range states is essential for implementation of these action plans.
The AEWA Plan of Action for Africa
The AEWA Plan of Action for Africa (PoAA) 2012-2017* is the operational guideline for the implementation of the African Initiative, over the same period. Following a highly consultative process, the plan was adopted at the 5th Session of the Meeting of the Parties to AEWA in 2012. It identifies a variety of concrete actions in order to help translate the objectives of the AEWA Strategic Plan 2009-2017* into tangible results on the ground.
(*The time span of the AEWA Strategic Plan and the AEWA Plan of Action for Africa was extended until 2018 by MOP6 through Resolution 6.14 and applies for the period 2009-2018 and 2012-2018 repectively.)
The Plan of Action to Address Bird Trapping Along the Mediterranean Coasts of Egypt and Libya
The Plan of Action to Address Bird Trapping Along the Mediterranean Coasts of Egypt and Libya was developed (and finalised in March 2014) because of the need for urgent action to tackle illegal and unsustainable bird trapping activities along the Mediterranean coasts of Egypt and Libya. An International Task Force has been established to facilitate the implementation of the Plan of Action.
