Expert Group Meeting on Conservation and Rehabilitation of Habitats for Key Migratory Birds in North-East Asia

Date: 
10 Oct 2013 to 11 Oct 2013
Location: 
Incheon, Republic of Korea

NEASPEC will organize an inception meeting for a new project, "Conservation and Rehabilitation of Habitats for Key Migratory Birds in North-East Asia," which directly supports the Nature Conservation Strategy, adopted by the 12th Senior Officials Meeting (SOM) in 2007. The Strategy identified the flagship species of North-East Asia, including three species of feline animals (Snow Leopard, Amur Leopard and Amur Tiger) and three species of migratory birds, namely, the White-naped Crane, the Hooded Crane and the Black-faced Spoonbill.

After several years of developing and highlighting the importance of follow-up activities on the migratory birds species, this meeting will bring together national experts and other stakeholders to review subregional and national challenges related to the conservation of the migratory bird species and their habitats. It also aims to develop an implementation plan for the project components including joint survey and study, capacity building on habitat management, strategy for habitat conservation and rehabilitation, and awareness raising on habitat conservation.
