Secretariat 

The Secretariat of the Sharks MOU is provided by the CMS Convention Secretariat in Bonn, Germany. Main tasks of the Secretariat are to coordinate all activities under the MOU and to organise meetings of the Signatories. Furthermore, it consults and shares information with Signatory States, IGOs and NGOs, including FAO, relevant RFMOs, CITES, CBD, Regional Seas Conventions, stakeholders of the fishing industry, local communities, and other relevant international organizations to assist in the implementation of this MoU. It also supports Signatories in search of financial resources to implement this agreement and encourage non-Signatory Range States to sign the Memorandum or to cooperate in its activities. Furthermore, the Interim Secretariat undertakes public awareness-raising activities.
