The Workshop of the Working Group for the development of the AEWA Plan of Action for Africa (PoAA) 2019-2027 took place from 10-12 October 2017 in Dakar, Senegal. The workshop served to initiate the development process for the Plan of Action for Africa. The Working Group included representatives of AEWA African Contracting Parties, the AEWA Standing Committee and Technical Committee, as well as observers from non-African Parties and AEWA partner organizations, and also the UNEP/AEWA Secretariat.
As per AEWA Resolution 6.14, the draft AEWA Plan of Action for Africa is to be presented to the 7th Session of the Meeting of the Parties to AEWA in 2018 for consideration and approval.
The workshop was organized by the UNEP/AEWA Secretariat and the Senegal Directorate of National Parks (Direction des Parcs Nationaux) and made possible thanks to the generous financial and other contributions from the Governments of Switzerland (through the Federal Office for the Environment, FOEN) and Senegal.
