Creation

 

The basic idea behind this initiative was born in 2007 during the International Conference “Stopping the loss of Black Sea Coastal Wetlands: the establishment of a regional initiative”, held on 30th -31st October 2007 in Odessa, Ukraine. Participants representing government ministries, national and international non-government organizations, international conventions and scientific institutions from Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania, the Russian Federation, Turkey and Ukraine discussed the basis for future cooperation in the field of wise use of coastal wetlands along the coast of the Black and Azov Seas. The workshop was organized by Wetlands International Black Sea Programme in cooperation with the Ministry of Environmental Protection of Ukraine and financed by the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature Management and Food Quality and the Dutch Embassy in Kiev, Ukraine.

With reference to the Operational Guidelines for Regional Initiatives adopted with Resolution X6 at the 10th Meeting of Parties to the Convention on Wetlands and attached as Annex I, and in accordance with Decision SC 40-18 of the 40th Meeting of the Ramsar Standing Committee in May 2009, the Black Sea Coastal Wetlands Initiative has been recognized as partially meeting the Regional Initiative Operational Guidelines and has been endorsed provisionally for one year (2009).

In this respect, Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve Authority has the opportunity to continue the implementation of the Black Sea Coastal Wetland Initiative (BSW) according with the Decision of SC 40 – 18 of 40th Meeting of the Ramsar Standing Committee.
