The Third Meeting of Signatories (MOS3) to the Memorandum of Understanding on the Conservation of Migratory Birds of Prey in Africa and Eurasia (Raptors MOU) shall be held from 3 to 6 July 2023 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
MOS3 offers the opportunity to convene the 61 Signatories and five Cooperating Partners of the Raptors MOU, to review progress on the conservation of birds of prey across the MOU’s area, celebrate successes, and define the focus of future priorities.
The Signatories will review proposed amendments to the MOU and its Annexes, including the Action Plan (as a result of a review carried out in 2020), the list of species covered by the MOU, their priority ranking (Table 1 of the Action Plan), and updates to the list of sites of international importance for migratory raptors (Table 3 of the Action Plan). Signatories will also review a ground-breaking first analysis of the conservation status of the 93 species listed under the MOU.
MOS3 provides the chance for relevant inter-governmental organizations, interested non-signatory Range States, and non-governmental and private sector organizations to attend as observers with a view to promote cooperation for the conservation of African-Eurasian migratory birds of prey and their habitats. The meeting will further provide an opportunity to share conservation initiatives and lessons learnt from them.
