The Asian Flyways Collaborative for Waterbirds (AFCoW) is a group of researchers seeking to exchange ideas and find opportunities for collaboration to improve the understanding of waterbird ecology in the Asian Flyways. AFCoW is directed at members interested in participating in scientific discussions or developing research partnerships on waterbirds in the Central Asian and East Asian-Australasian Flyways.
