At the first Meeting of the Parties to AEWA last November,
delegates decided that the Secretariat of this Agreement
should work under the blue flag of the United Nations. Bert
Lenten from the Netherlands who served as Interim Secretary,
has been appointed Executive Secretary and will take up
his post on 17 July. The Secretariat will be collocated
with the CMS Secretariat in Bonn, Germany. This will further
enhance co-operation between CMS and AEWA.
Similar moves are being considered at the forthcoming MOPís
of EUROBATS and
ASCOBANS, which are being held from 24 - 26 and 26 -
28 July respectively.
