The location on the map is approximate!

The Americas Flyways Framework (AFF) Task Force is convened in line with the mandate provided by Resolution 11.14 on Migratory Birds and Flyways. The resolution calls on the Flyways Working Group and on the CMS Secretariat to support the establishment of a Task Force to coordinate engagement of partners in the development and implementation of an action plan for the AFF including provisions for concerted conservation action for priority species. Relevant hemispheric entities will be involved with the aim of reinforcing their mandates.

The goal of the AFF Task Force is to establish a shared and common practice for conservation of migratory birds in the countries of the Americas, strengthening the implementation of already existing initiatives for migratory bird conservation in the Region and promoting cooperation between countries. The Task Force will facilitate implementation of the AFF and associated Action Plan, with a focus on filling gaps and enacting conservation on the ground.

The First Meeting of the Americas Flyways Task Force will take place on the 26-27 July 2018 in the city of Florianópolis, at the kind invitation of the Government of Brazil.
