Wetlands International Asia-Pacific

Wetlands International - Asia Pacific is an international not-for-profit organisation committed to promoting the protection and sustainable utilisation of wetlands and wetland resources in the Asia Pacific region. Wetlands International - Asia Pacific was created in October 1995 following the merger of the Asian Wetland Bureau (AWB) with the International Waterfowl and Wetlands Research Bureau (IWRB) and Wetlands for the Americas (WA) to form the global organisation Wetlands International.

Wetlands International - Asia Pacific activities are characterised by strong interaction and collaboration with governments, intergovernmental agencies and non-government organizations. The organisation's activities are coordinated through the Regional Headquarters (based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) and channelled through regional programmes for Indonesia, Malaysia, Indochina, Oceania, People's Republic of China and South Asia.

Wetlands International has been involved in surveys, monitoring and conservation of waterbirds and wetlands since 1954. The organization has coordinated the Asian Waterfowl Census since 1987. It also encourages preparation of strategies and action plans for waterbird and habitat conservation. Wetlands International organizes international and national conferences, workshops and meetings to encourage the exchange of information, experiences and training.
