Democratic People’s Republic of Korea became the 36th Partner of the East Asian – Australasian Flyway Partnership
After becoming the 170th Contracting Party to the Convention on Wetlands, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea became the 36th Partner of the East Asian – Australasian Flyway Partnership on 11 April 2018 and has nominated the Kumya Wetland Reserve and Mundok Migratory Bird Reserve as their first two EAAF Network Sites.
In recent years, the DPR Korea has been increasingly active in collaborating with international organizations to identify priority areas for the conservation of migratory waterbirds through survey and monitoring projects along their coastal and inland wetlands. The country has also initiated an inventory of their countries’ wetlands which will yield important information on the biodiversity of those areas and the services that they provide for people.
