Participants will consist of designated government representatives and national experts from the following key Range States for the two species: Denmark, Estonia, Faroe Islands, Finland, Germany, Greenland, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Russia, Sweden, United Kingdom. In addition, the following international conservation and hunting organizations involved in the conservation of the species will be invited to attend as observers: BirdLife International, CIC, FACE, Wetlands International.

The remit of the Working Group and the focus of the meeting will be to discuss the implementation of the AEWA International Single Species Action Plans for the Conservation of the Long-tailed Duck (Clangula hyemalis) and the Velvet Scoter (Melanitta fusca), adopted by the 6th and 7th Sessions of the Meetings of the AEWA Contracting Parties in 2015 and 2018, respectively. The expected outcome of the meeting will be the development and adoption of a dedicated and detailed workplan for the years 2020-2023 outlining priority conservation action for both species with a focus on where countries can work together to implement activities (development of cross-border or regional projects, research needs etc.). There will also be detailed sessions on by-catch and harvest of both species in an effort to better understand and subsequently diminish causes of direct mortality.
