The workshop will build on cumulative experience and knowledge from EU Sustainable Hunting Project results (2004-2007) and the regional hunting workshop held by USFS (US Forest Service) and SPNL in October 2010, to build the participants capacity on MSB hunting issues and to mainstream MSB conservation in existing and planned conservation initiatives, and to feat and develop previous initiatives by mainstreaming MSB considerations. In addition, the workshop will promote and contribute to the development of a “Declaration on Hunting” in the Rift Valley/Red Sea flyway, development of a monitoring plan to assess the hunting pressure on MSBs, and will build on national efforts to tackle hunting issue; specifically by supporting the national Wildlife Law Enforcement vehicle in Jordan and the Higher Hunting Council vehicle in Lebanon.
