About the plan

This shorebird action plan is the result of successful international cooperation in the Asia-Pacific region. It is one of three action plans for priority species groups prepared under the Asia-Pacific Migratory Waterbird Conservation Strategy: 1996-2000, with other action plans being implemented for cranes and Anatidae (ducks, geese and swans).

The shorebird action plan does not sit under any international legal framework, but rather relies upon governments and non-government organisations working in partnership to conserve migratory shorebirds and their habitats in Asia Pacific.
