Migratory Soaring Birds Project - Regional Component
The project aims to integrate conservation of migratory soaring birds into relevant sectors, namely agriculture, energy, hunting, waste management and tourism, in 11 countries along the Rift Valley / Red Sea Flyway.
To conserve migratory soaring birds, we build partnerships and strategic alliances with private businesses, NGOs, governments, international organizations and on-going initiatives in these sectors. We also call on the concept of hospitality towards visiting guests, a concept deeply rooted in the culture of our region.
Finally, we ask for an understanding of the services that birds provide.
- Development of a pioneer sensitivity mapping tool for the wind energy sector in the Rift Valley / Red Sea region.
- Development of guidance material for mainstreaming soaring birds’ conservation into the energy sector.
- Completion of a regional workshop on mainstreaming soaring birds’ conservation into the energy sector that focused on showcasing best practices for risk management to birds from renewable energy sources developed by the project.
- Completion of a capacity assessment report that identifies the training needs of national partners and will guide future capacity building activities.
- Administration of strategic communication capacity building workshop to environmental non-governmental and governmental organizations.
- Awareness raising around bird conservation issues through the participation to international events such as the World Migratory Bird Day.
- Promotion of the project through the organization of several national workshops in project countries
The Migratory Soaring Birds project works towards
- Raising awareness about the importance of the Rift Valley / Red Sea flyway and the soaring birds that migrate through it every year.
- Altering the social and cultural behaviors of key people working within sectors that present threats or opportunities to the flyway
- Building the capacity of relevant national and regional organizations to integrate soaring birds conservation within their work.
- Promoting flyway friendly practices through content and tools destined to be used at both national and regional levels
