HSF-EAAFP Conference on 23rd November

In cooperation with the East Asian-Australasian Flyway Partnership, Hanns Seidel Foundation Korea will host a conference titled “Management of flyways of Asia - similarities, common challenges, overlap and differences” on 23rd of November.

One of the greatest challenged of climate change is the threat of a dramatic loss of biodiversity. Therefore, preserving ecosystems and biodiversity becomes an important part of the mitigation of climate change. Migratory birds, which count to the most important bio-indicators of a healthy environment, are using so-called “flyways”, i.e like routes in the sky leading from breeding to non-breeding grounds. Even though there has been great networking between the nine big flyways worldwide, more exchange among them is needed.


In 2017, HSF became one of EAAFP's partners and has since been one of its 39 members. The East Asian-Australasian Flyway Partnership (EAAFP) was launched on 6 November 2006 and aims to protect migratory waterbirds, their habitats and the livelihoods of people dependent upon them. The EAAFP has since organized workshops, conferences and events to promote exchange and learning between airways.


On 23rd of November, the partners HSF and EAAFP will host a conference from 09:00 - 18:00 KST in the Lilly Hall of Orakai Songdo Park Hotel in Incheon with presentations given by experts and time for networking. The conference can as well be attended online, please pre-register following this link:
