The North American Waterfowl Management Plan is a comprehensive document that needs constant review
and update to remain viable and effectively deal with international problems. In this planning process, there is an
additional need for continuity and coordination to allow wildlife management agencies to initiate short- and long-
term projects that are consistent with the overall Plan.
In view of these needs, a North American Waterfowl Management Plan Committee should be established to
monitor and update the Plan, coordinate current work
and review new proposals and joint ventures. Federal, state, provincial and territorial wildlife agencies should provide
representation to thislCommittee. The Committee would suggest recommendations for actions within the scope of the Plan. It will not have regulatory authority nor alter the functions of flyway councils in the United States.
