North American Waterfowl Management Program (NAWMP) Original Plan

North American Waterfowl Management Program (NAWMP) Original Plan. A Strategy for Cooperation.  May, 1986.

North American Waterfowl Management Program (NAWMP) is an international agreement developed in 1986, which recognizes the recovery and perpetuation of waterfowl and other wetland wildlife that depend on the restoration of wetlands and associated ecosystems throughout North America. As a result, it established cooperative initiatives (joint ventures) to reverse declines in wetland habitats and associated wildlife. 

This document provided the earliest framework for a waterfowl conservation and management effort by describing population and habitat goals and suggesting recommendations that would resolve problems of international concern.

It was a broad approach utilizing a 15-year horizon, with review and updating at 5-year intervals.
