Recognizing that no single site or country can protect all the migratory waterbirds along the flyway, international collaboration is vital. That is why, in 2006, a partnership was launched to conserve migratory waterbirds, their habitat and the livelihoods of people who depend on them. This partnership is called the East Asian — Australasian Flyway Partnership (EAAFP).
