In 1990 the Joint Venture partnership developed its first strategic plan to deliver partnership-based waterfowl conservation, the Central Valley Habitat Joint Venture Implementation Plan. The 2006 Central Valley Joint Venture Implementation Plan incorporates new information and broadens the scope of conservation activities to include objectives for shorebirds, waterbirds, and riparian songbirds.
The 2006 Plan brings together research, monitoring data and evaluation from many sources, and represents the combined expertise of a wide range of professionals from conservation organizations, State and Federal agencies, and the private sector. Their knowledge and experience comprise the foundation for this plan.
The Plan is currently in the process of being revised and is slated for release in 2017. The new Plan will update existing information and will add additional chapters including Oak Savannah/Grassland Birds, Social Science/Human Dimensions, and Conservation Strategies.
