The location on the map is approximate!
Description: 

To ensure effective preparation for the 12th Meeting of the Conference of the Parties to CMS (COP12) and to give participants from the African Region the possibility to develop common positions on some of the issues which will be of priority interest to them, the CMS Secretariat, in collaboration with the Ethiopian Wildlife Conservation Authority, is holding a COP12 Regional Preparatory Workshop from 9-11 August 2017, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

This event will cover several aspects of building the capacity of National Focal Points (NFPs). First and foremost, the focus lies on effective COP preparation and regional consultation. Beyond this, opportunities to strengthen the capacity in CMS implementation beyond COP12 will be discussed.

The European Commission were recognized as Champion Plus for their generous support and commitment towards Building Capacity for Migratory Species Conservation for the period 2015-2018. This activity has been funded with the contribution granted by the European Commission under the Migratory Species Champion Programme and through the Global Public Goods and Challenges (GPGC Programme) Cooperation Agreements with UNEP.
