WWN and Ramsar hosted the first WWN Africa webinar, aimed at all those delivering wetland conservation as part of an NGO (Non-Governmental Organisation) or civil society group. The webinar included a presentation from Ramsar’s senior regional representative for Africa, Paul Ouedraogo, on how Ramsar works with civil society groups, updates on WWN from the Chair of the network, Mr Chris Rostron, and an excellent presentation from Madagascan colleagues at Conservation International on the work of civil society groups on the Nosivolo River, and how winning WWN’s blue globe award had helped their project.
The webinar was recorded by the hosts, Stetson University, US, and is available to view at this link. We thank our colleagues at Stetson for helping the webinar go so smoothly, and we are planning another one later this year.
