    Millions of people depend on Sahelian wetlands for their livelihoods. These ecosystems provide essential ser- vices to local communities and are also home to many waterbirds. Climate change, water and agricultural de- velopments and the intensive exploitation of natural resources are threatening these fragile habitats, which has led to a dramatic decrease of 40 percent in waterbird populations in the region between 1960 and 2000.7 If the waterbirds were to disappear from this region, many rural communities would be deprived of an important source of food. The RESSOURCE Project was launched in 2017 to tackle the challenges facing people and migratory birds in Egypt, Mali, Senegal, Sudan and Chad. This initiative works with national authorities and local communities to: • improve knowledge on waterbirds populations and their Sahelian wetlands habitats as well as on the major threats to their conservation; • develop innovative solutions for the sustainable management of waterbirds populations and their Sahelian habitats.

    The project “Strengthening expertise in sub-Saharan Africa on birds and their rational use for communities and their environment” (RESSOURCE) for an Integrated Management of Migratory Waterbirds and Wetlands in Africa, aims to improve natural resource management in the large Sahelian wetlands where local populations derive many benefits, particularly in terms of food security and local development. Co-funded by the French Global Environment Facility and the European Union, the project is the Sahelian component of the Sustainable Wildlife Management Programme (SWM Programme), an initiative of the Organization of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS). This Project is being implemented in cooperation with the relevant Governments authorities in Chad, Egypt, Mali, Senegal and Sudan; and with key technical partners, including: • French Agricultural Research Centre for International Development (CIRAD); • Office français de la biodiversité (OFB); • European institute for the management of wild birds and their habitats (OMPO); • Wetlands International Africa (WIA); • Birdlife International (BI); • Research Institute Tour du Valat (TdV) This exciting biannual RESSOURCE newsletter inform our donors and partners about the main highlights and results in the countries.
