BirdLife’s Conservation Programmes in Africa

The work of the BirdLife Africa Partnership is aligned to BirdLife International’s 2013-2020 Strategy, which sets the global Partnership’s objectives for saving species, conserving sites and habitats, encouraging ecological sustainability, and empowering people. The Strategy is translated into action through BirdLife’s nine global Programmes (Preventing Extinctions, Important Bird Areas, Seabird and Marine, Migratory Birds and Flyways, Forests of Hope, Local Empowerment, Capacity Development, Invasive Alien Species, and Climate Change), plus a number of regional programmes. The BirdLife Africa Partnership has had a leading role in developing several of these Programmes, including Local Empowerment, and the monitoring element of the IBA Programme.
