RESOLUTION 1.5
THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A REGISTER OF INTERNATIONAL PROJECTS

The Meeting of the Parties to the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds,
Recalling that Article V, paragraph 4 of the Agreement encourages Parties “to provide training and technical and financial support to other Parties on a multilateral and bilateral basis to assist them in implementing the provisions of this Agreement”,
Further recalling that Article II of the Agreement requires Parties to “take coordinated measures to maintain migratory waterbird species in a favourable conservation status or to restore them to such status”,
Aware that many international co-operation projects already exist throughout the Agreement area which, together, provide a powerful impetus for the successful implementation of the Agreement,

1. Endorses the importance of the international co-operation projects included in the Register of International Projects (AEWA/MOP1.17, with amendments as listed in Annex I) as making a first and valuable and direct contribution to the implementation of the Agreement;


2. Authorizes partners in the projects listed in the Register of International Projects and Annex I to use the Agreement logo in association with the project, to promote the Agreement through the activities of their project, and to provide reports on progress of their project to the Agreement secretariat;
3. Requests the Technical Committee at each of its meetings to review and approve new projects for inclusion in the Register of International Projects, and to remove projects that are complete or inactive, and to submit a revised version to each future session of the Meeting of the Parties;
4. Instructs the Agreement secretariat to maintain the Register of International Projects, to disseminate information on these projects (including through the Convention on Biological Diversity clearing-house mechanism), and (upon request) to provide the partner organizations in the projects (including donors) with a displayable “Certificate of Endorsement” for the contribution of their project to the Agreement.
