25 Years of AEWA – Statement by Dr. Akankwasah Barirega, Former Chair of the Standing Committee

AEWA has over time raised the profile of waterbird conservation on the African Continent. Conservation of birds in Uganda, for example, has benefited immensely from the tools, processes and knowledge-sharing materials developed under AEWA. Birds now receive the same level of attention from policy makers hitherto accorded mainly to mammal conservation.
