The 1st Meeting of the AEWA Benguela Coastal Seabirds International Working Group took place online from 3 – 4 March 2021. The meeting was organized by the UNEP/AEWA Secretariat in collaboration with BirdLife South Africa with funding provided by the Government of the United Kingdom through its Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).
The primary aim of the meeting was to establish international coordination for the implementation of the International Multi-species Action Plan for the Conservation of Benguela Current Upwelling System Coastal Seabirds which was adopted by the 6th Meeting of the Parties to AEWA in November 2015. The focus of this first meeting of the IWG was to agree on critical conservation activities to be implemented as a matter of priority including discussions on options for funding such activities.
