This will be achieved by:

  • The establishment of links between conservation and bird orientated groups in the region
  • Developing regional communications links via email websites and the production of a regular newsletter
  • Promoting regional meetings and workshops to focus attention on global and local issues.

The Network includes:

  • Shorebird/wetlands researchers
  • Wetland managers (linked through Wetlands Link International-Asia, Wetlands International)

Conservation and study groups such as:

  • National and regional shorebird groups
  • Wetlands International
  • Birdlife International
  • WWF
