Asia-Pacific Migratory Waterbird Conservation Strategy

Since 1996, the conservation of migratory waterbirds and their habitats in the Asia-Pacific region has been promoted through the Asia-Pacific Migratory Waterbird Conservation Strategy, which is an international cooperative initiative.

The Strategy defines the current state of NGO activities and bilateral and multilateral agreements between governments, confirms the problems that have emerged in the conservation of migratory waterbirds and their habitats, and establishes the goals and activities involved for settlement of problems and greater international cooperation.Under the Strategy, three networks of internationally important sites for migratory shorebirds, cranes and Anatidae have been developed.Numerous activities such as organization of symposiums and training courses as well as information exchanges have been undertaken at network sites.The Ministry of the Environment has actively supported the Strategy and three flyway networks in cooperation with NGOs and relevant governments in the region.
