Introduction 2: Purpose of this Document
In its current forward plan, A Strategy for Birds and People, the BirdLife International Partnership have set themselves the task of identifying, conserving and promoting a global network of internationally important sites for birds and biodiversity with three specific objectives, two indicators by which to measure progress and some high level targets.
Strategy for IBA conservation sets out a shared vision for how BirdLife will achieve this. While IBA identification is well advanced, much more needs to be done to promote and conserve in perpetuity these critically important sites. Strategy for IBA conservation describes all elements of the BirdLife Important Bird Area programme together with a set of global goals to be achieved through the BirdLife Partnership in collaboration with others by 2015. It provides a cross reference to all other key BirdLife IBA documentation that exists.
