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 from22 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.


To be eligible to participate in this workshop, and to enable the Secretariat to confirm and continue to organize this meeting, the participants are required to register as soon as possible but no later than 31 July 2015 online using the following link .

Please do not forget to upload the completed questionnaire, attached to this letter, as a PDF to the online registration.
