The Waterbird Population Estimates (WPE) online database provides current and historic estimates, trends and 1% thresholds for over 800 waterbird species and 2300 biogeographic populations worldwide. This project has been developed by Wetlands International with the support of Environment Canada and the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands. Visit the Waterbird Population Estimates Database
The goal of this project is to develop the foundations for integrating wetland biodiversity conservation into water related sectoral policies in Ukraine based on ecological network development and civil society engagement in a pilot project in the South Bug River Basin.
This project aims to enhance the conservation and sustainable development of the Black Sea coastal wetlands. It will establish the foundations for a regional wetlands initiative that will underpin future wetland conservation efforts.
Increased awareness on ecological networks and biodiversity conservation among governmental bodies, NGOs, schools is contributing towards the establishment of the Dnipro eco-corridor.
The development of the ecological network in Ukraine has been enhanced by focusing on the Southern Boug meridional river corridor. A map on GIS basis and a poster has been prepared.
Project was financed by the Royal Netherlands Embassy in the Ukraine.
The Southern Bug meridional river corridor: biodiversity and valuable areas
The basis for the establishment of an integrated management system for the entire Sivash ecosystem for the conservation and sustainable use of wetlands and their resources was established.
This project aimed to reveal the current state and the perspectives of irrigational farming in Ukraine regarding the impact on biodiversity. We did this through the study of biodiversity in the Dzhankoi District of the Crimean Autonomous Republic, an area with large scale irrigation.
The capacity to undertake small river conservation work in Ukraine was developed. A series of conservation actions by small NGOs throughout Ukraine were developed and implemented by members of the Ukrainian Rivers network. Project was financed by the Netherlands’ Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality.
Wetlands International established an NGO Association called the “Ukrainian Rivers Network” (URN) to support and advocate better conservation and sustainable development of small rivers and streams throughout Ukraine.
A National Strategy and Action Plan including strategic planning policies for integrated and inter-sectoral conservation, restoration and wise-use of wetlands and wetland resources in Ukraine was agreed and drafted. The national wetland directory was updated and amended. This is now awaiting formal endorsement by the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources of Ukrainian.
