- UNEP Executive Director, Achim
Steiner, took the opportunity of his attendance at the 64th
Conference for NGOs in Bonn to visit the staff of the CMS
Secretariat.

Mr Steiner set out the challenges facing
the United Nations in turbulent times – both politically
and financially - and stressed the importance of engaging
Parties so that the relevance of the UN as the prime forum
for international discussion of key global issues was universally
recognized. He praised staff for their dedication, promised
continuing support from HQ in recruiting new Parties and
expressed his confidence that COP10 would bring satisfactory
results.
