Capacity-Building Workshop for Non-Member States of Latin America

The CMS Secretariat, together with the Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean (ROLAC) of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), is organizing for the first time a training workshop for Spanish-speaking Latin American Non-Parties, in Panama City, Panama from 22 to 24 September 2015.

The Convention provides a global platform for the conservation and sustainable use of migratory species and their habitats. Amongst the Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) which share the aim of protecting wildlife, CMS has a unique role in conserving threatened migratory species.

The event is an opportunity to strengthen the presence of the CMS and support the ratification process in this region. The occasion will also be useful to present to the National Contacts training tools recently produced by the CMS Secretariat such as the CMS Family Manual or the CMS Family Guide.

This activity has been kindly sponsored by the European Commission through the Global Public Goods and Challenges (GPGC) Programme Cooperation Agreements with UNEP.

Capacity-Building Workshop for Non-Member States of Latin America Please note this Workshop is being held entirely in Spanish!
