Arctic Migratory Birds Initiative (AMBI) Work Plan 2015-2019 REVISED

The Arctic Migratory Birds Initiative (AMBI) is designed to improve the conservation status and secure the long-term sustainability of declining Arctic breeding migratory bird populations. This work plan identifies key actions over four years.

AMBI has, through a series of workshops , brought together experts in Arctic migratory bird species and conservation issues from across the globe. These experts identified three major conservation issues facing Arctic migratory birds habitat loss and degradation, especially of intertidal areas; unsustainable harvest; and marine bycatch. The group also identified priority species.

AMBI will have a positive impact on societies for whom migratory birds are a source of livelihood and spiritual inspiration. AMBI also provides an early implementation of Recommendation #8 of the Arctic Biodiversity Assessment to reduce stressors on migratory species range-wide. 

A steering committee comprising CAFF members Canada, Russia, Norway, and the United States, along with expert advisors from BirdLife International, was formed to guide the development and implementation of AMBI work plans.
