IWMC Recommendations for CoP19

Part I The Proposals



For CITES CoP19, IWMC ?? World Conservation Trust has adopted a new approach to its usual recommendations on Proposals and Documents submitted for consideration by the Conference of the Parties at its 19th meeting to be held in Panama City, Panama, from 14 to 25 November 2022.

I addition to regular members of the IWMC team, a total of 7 experts from different perspectives of the Conservation World were consulted and participated in the elaboration of IWMC's recommendations. For aquatic species and related documents, IWMC's recommendations relied entirely on the outcome of the Panel of Experts organised by the FAO under the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), signed in 2006, between the Food and Agricultural Organisation of the United Nations and the Secretariat of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). This MoU is a tool to maintain the credibility of CITES as a science-based organization.

The format of the recommendations has also been modified in order to supply compelling arguments to support the recommendations, when requested by the nature of the proposal and/or document. The fact that IWMC addresses only some of the proposals and documents in its recommendations is dictated by our belief that these proposals and documents deal with fundamental principles involved in CITES structure, activities and evolution.

We hope these recommendations will be useful in your deliberations.

Please refer to the attached PDF for the table of recommendations.
