    It would have been good if data from the African Waterfowl Census in Kenya were consulted. Although with some year data gaps, it has been running since 1991 thus providing some trend in the local (Kenyan/EA) population. However, while I support the proposal, we should be worried of the impacts of the rising water levels in the Rift Valley Lakes some of which the species has been recorded. These are perhaps the impacts of climate change that may affect the species negatively through loss of foraging niche.

    Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this discussion. We greatly appreciate the time and effort invested by so many people in commenting. The window for consultation is now closed. We will analyse and interpret the new information and post a preliminary decision on this species’s Red List status on this page in early July.

    Thank you once again,

    Preliminary proposal

    Based on available information, our preliminary proposal for the 2021 Red List would be to adopt the proposed classifications outlined in the initial forum discussion.

    There is now a period for further comments until the final deadline in mid-July, after which the recommended categorisations will be put forward to IUCN.

    The final 2021 Red List categories will be published on the BirdLife and IUCN websites in December 2021, following further checking of information relevant to the assessments by both BirdLife and IUCN.

    Recommended categorisation to be put forward to IUCN

    The final categorisation for this species has not changed. Chestnut-banded Plover is recommended to be listed as Least Concern.

    Many thanks for everyone who contributed to the 2021 GTB Forum process. The final 2021 Red List categories will be published on the BirdLife and IUCN websites in December 2021, following further checking of information relevant to the assessments by both BirdLife and IUCN.
