The Khor Abu Habil Inner Delta in Sudan has officially become a wetland of international importance under the Ramsar Convention! 

The RESSOURCE Project has been working with the Sudanese Wildlife administration and the local communities for over four years to support the designation of the Inner Delta of the Khor Abu Habil under the Ramsar Convention. This collaborative work has been successful, as this natural heritage has officially been designated as a wetland of international importance. 

The Khor Abu Habil Inner Delta is an inland wetland with an area of almost 950,000 hectares, located 400 kilometres southwest of Khartoum.  It is essential for hundreds of villages and hosts hundreds of thousands of migratory birds, including seven threatened species including the critically endangered Rueppell’s vulture (Gyps rueppellii) and sociable lapwing (Vanellus gregarius).

Le delta intérieur du Khor Abu Habil au Soudan est officiellement devenu une zone humide d’importance internationale, au titre de la Convention de Ramsar! 

Le Projet RESSOURCE travaille depuis plus de quatre ans avec l’administration soudanaise de la faune sauvage et les communautés locales afin de soutenir le processus de désignation du delta intérieur de Khor Abu Habil en tant que site de la Convention de Ramsar. Ces efforts collaboratifs ont porté fruits, puisque ce patrimoine naturel a officiellement été désigné comme une zone humide d’importance internationale. 

Le delta intérieur du Khor Abu Habil est une zone humide continentale de près de 950 000 hectares située à 400 kilomètres au sud-ouest de Khartoum.  Il est essentiel pour des centaines de villages et accueille des centaines de milliers d’oiseaux migrateurs, dont sept espèces menacées, notamment le vautour de Rüppell (Gyps rueppellii) et le vanneau sociable (Vanellus gregarius), tous deux en danger critique d’extinction.

À Madagascar, le SWM Programme encourage une exploitation durable de la faune sauvage non-protégée et une augmentation de l’offre en protéines alternatives pour remplacer la consommation de viande de brousse. Le projet vise à assurer la sécurité alimentaire des communautés locales, tout en préservant les espèces endémiques.

Deux publications ont été développées afin d’aider les communautés rurales situées dans les sites du SWM Programme à accroître l’offre en viandes et poissons d’élevage produits de manière durable.

Découvrez-les ci-dessous!

*******************************************************************************

In Madagascar, the SWM Programme is promoting sustainable use of non-protected wildlife species and an increase in the supply of alternative proteins to replace wild meat consumption. The project aims to ensure food security for local communities, while at the same time conserving endemic species.

Two publications have been developed to help rural communities in the SWM Programme sites in Madagascar increasing the supply of sustainably produced meat products and farmed fish.
