Objective F - Establishment of advanced migratory waterbird and habitat information storage and retrieval systems

Promote the development and use of computer-based information storage and retrieval systems to enhance efficiency and accuracy of retrieving data obtained in migratory waterbird and habitat monitoring, research and management activities.

Action F.1

Encourage each country in the Asia-Pacific region to develop a standardized and compatible database of wetlands of importance for migratory waterbirds.

Action F.2

Develop and/or refine compatible databases for information on wetlands of importance at a national level using existing database systems, eg, the Wetland Database Programme developed for Indonesian wetlands by the Cooperative PHPA/Wetlands International - Indonesia Programme.

Action F.3

Enhance capabilities and applications of the existing databases developed for maintaining waterbird distribution and population data collected in the Asian Waterfowl Census (AWC) and other surveys.
