The North American Waterfowl Management Plan (NAWMP) is an international plan established in 1986 by Canada and the United States with Mexico joining later. The purpose of the partnership established by the NAWMP is to conserve and protect wetland and upland habitats and associated waterfowl populations by connecting people with nature. It was established in response to the increasingly recognized continental-scale decline of wetlands and waterfowl across North America, particularly in agricultural areas. It provides a policy framework that describes the scope and goals, identifies problems facing waterfowl populations, and sets general guidelines for addressing the problems.
