Workshop for the Egyptian Action Plan in Greece (HOS/V.Saravia)

A consultation workshop aiming for the approval of the National Action Plan for the Egyptian vulture in Greece took place on the 31st of October in Athens. In an effort to engage as many stakeholders as possible, representatives from different public authorities and bodies were invited in order to discuss different aspects of the Action Plan. Thus, over 50 people coming from different parts of Greece and different public bodies such as the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change, the Ministry of Rural Development, Forestry Services, Management Bodies, Hunting Associations, other NGOs, etc, participated in the meeting.

Albeit the difficulties identified for the implementation of some of the SAP proposed actions, the participants agreed on the urgency and vital importance of the approval and implementation of the Action Plan in order to save the last Egyptian vulture breeding pairs in Greece.   

A final draft with all the meeting's outputs will be compiled and sent for final agreement among participants and key stakeholders. After this, the final version of the SAP will be sent to the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change for its official approval.

We would like to thank all the participants who travelled from all over Greece for their involvement and contribution to this vital effort to save this emblematic species. We would also like to thank the Forest Research Institute of Athens where the venue was held for their hospitality and help during the organization of the event.
