Birdlife’s policy work in the Asia region is coordinated by the BirdLife Asia Partnership, and involves work with national governments, intergovernmental and regional bodies, and international conventions. With the support of the Asia Partnership and the BirdLife International Secretariat, national BirdLife Partners work with their governments to meet their obligations under international environmental agreements and conventions, to develop National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plans, to build robust and representative protected area systems, and to identify candidate marine protected areas.
