Target 12: The genetic diversity of wild populations of migratory species is safeguarded, and strategies have been developed and implemented for minimizing genetic erosion.


 ►    The CMS COP Resolution 12.21 (Manila 2017) on Climate Change and Migratory Species includes:

• Develop an understanding of migration routes, how they are changing (e.g. using existing recoveries of ringed birds and new tracking technologies) and the connectivity between populations (e.g. using genetic approaches) to identify key sites, locations and appropriate management units for particular species.
