The MOU on the Conservation of Southern South American Migratory Grassland Bird Species and Their Habitats (also known as MdE Pastizales) was concluded under the auspices CMS and became effective on 26 August 2007. Under the Convention on Migratory Species, the Governments of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay agreed to work together towards better conservation of migratory species of grassland birds of Southern South America and developed the MOU text.

The First Meeting of Signatories (MOS1) took place in Asunción, Paraguay on 15 December 2010. In July 2018, the Second Meeting of Signatories to the MdE Pastizales (MOS2) was held in Florianópolis, Brazil, where the success of implementing the MOU Action Plan was  evaluated and a new cycle was planned. The meeting successfully updated the MOU Action Plan, valid until 2023.

After two years of work within each Signatory to the MOU, a “Monitoring Meeting of the Action Plan of the MOU on the Conservation of Southern South American Migratory Grassland Bird Species and their Habitats” will be held in September 2020, in order to assess the degree to which each planed action has been implemented and to discuss the following steps to achieve the Action Plan’s goals. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all activities related to MOU monitoring will be carried out virtually. Prior to the meeting, MOU Signatory countries’ NFPs will be asked to complete a monitoring spreadsheet. The virtual meeting will be held from 1 to 4 September 2020.

The meeting is organized by the Brazilian Ministry of the Environment - MMA, in conjunction with the National Center for Bird Conservation and Research – CEMAVE of the Chico Mendes Institute for Biodiversity Conservation - ICMBio, as coordinators of the MOU until 2023.
