The North American Wetlands Conservation Council asked the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to conduct a programmatic evaluation of the first 10 years of the North American Wetlands Conservation Act implementation, working with partners to examine its success and to identify recommendations for improvement.

During 2001-2003, independent evaluators confirmed the success of the NAWCA in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Through a variety of methodologies including interviews, focus groups and case studies, partners indicated a high level of satisfaction regarding implementation of the Act in its first 10 years.
