UNEP/CMS’s Declaration on Migratory Bird Species

 
Many European migratory bird species are declining in their populations, especially Trans Saharan migrators, who winter in Sub-Saharan Africa.The main reason for the decrease in population for these species is the massive loss of habitat in the areas of migration and overwintering (s. Bairlein, science.sciencemag.org/cgi/rapidpdf/354/6312/547).
In order to address this issue and find ways of finding solutions, the initiative of an international steering group on the " Aktionsplan zum Schutz wandernder Landvogelarten " of the " Bonner Konvention " of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), which also includes Prof. Dr. Franz Bairlein’s, in Abuja, Nigeria, workshop on land use and its impact on migratory birds. As a result, the "Abuja-Deklaration" was adopted as an important document for the sustainable development of land use in West Africa taking into account the needs of men and nature.
