National Audubon Society, BirdLife International, and the Development Bank of Latin America and the Caribbean (CAF) are pleased to launch the Americas Flyways Initiative, the flagship strategic response to their shared vision and commitment to protect, conserve and restore nature and address the biodiversity loss and climate change crisis across the Americas.

Panel of speakers will include:

Elizabeth Gray, CEO, The National Audubon Society
Martin Harper, CEO (Interim), BirdLife International
Alicia Montalvo, Climate Action and Biodiversity Positive Manager, Development Bank of Latin America and the Caribbean – CAF

It’s a hemispheric, innovative, and visionary approach that combines applied science with financial mechanisms to protect and conserve critical sites for birds and wildlife under a sustainable development scheme supported by integrating and scaling up Nature-Based Solutions (NBS).

We aim to make the most significant economic investment in the Americas focused on sustainable development projects to benefit local communities, the planet's welfare and safeguard a crucial ecosystem network. Our initiative is an opportunity for synergy, integration, and harmonious coexistence that unites people and nature beyond borders, seeking healthy and prosperous environments. We join forces to safeguard migratory and endemic threatened resident birds throughout the Western Hemisphere.
