Celebrating 25 Years of AEWA

Bonn, 16 June 2020 - Over the past 25 years, a group of dedicated countries, organizations and people from across the African-Eurasian region have worked together in a common effort to protect migratory waterbirds and the habitats they need to survive. The work they have done collectively has been guided and carried out under the framework of an intergovernmental treaty called AEWA - the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds.

To mark the 25th Anniversary of the treaty, the AEWA Secretariat has put together a dedicated webpage, which brings together some of the history and highlights of the past 25 years of international waterbird conservation under AEWA.  It also features an exciting new film that is being launched globally to coincide with the anniversary, which highlights the importance of a few of the critical waterbird sites found across the African-Eurasian Flyway. Last but not least, the visitor to this page will also find a growing collection of 25th Anniversary Statements by people that have helped shape and guide the work of the treaty to date.
