The policy work of the BirdLife Africa Partnership focuses on ten priority sectoral issues: Biodiversity, Marine, Forests, Wetlands, Dry lands, Agriculture, Climate change, Migratory species, Bird Trade and HIV/AIDS. The African Policy and Advocacy Working Group works with the Council of the African Partnership to find solutions to regional issues, and to ensure that BirdLife’s regional Policy and Advocacy strategy is in harmony with the conservation priorities and policies of regional institutions and regional and global conventions.
