41 scientists and conservationists representing 18 countries met from 4 to 7 November 2000 at the Otter Centre in Hankensbüttel, Germany, to discuss possibilities for an efficient implementation of the second edition of the IUCN/SCC 0tter Action Plan.
In 1999 the IUCN/SSC Otter Specialist Group started to revise the global Otter Action Plan which was first published in 1990. Action plans are an important tool for conservation. How much they can contribute to the protection of species and habitats will not only depend on the quality of their contents. Their implementation is most important.
Experience with the 1990 Otter Action Plan has shown that it did not reach many decision makers on the national level, the scientific community, management authority or the media. Therefore it was found to be necessary to develop a strategy for an efficient implementation of the new Otter Action Plan early enough.
This was the main objective of this workshop. Invited speakers reported on their experience with the implementation of other action plans and representatives of international and national agencies, of scientific institutions and of the communication sector defined the criteria which can support the implementation process. Members of the Otter Specialist Group prepared recommendations for the efficient implementation of the Otter Action Plan.
