EAAFP at CMS COP12

The theme of 2017’s World Migratory Bird Day was “Their Future is Our Future”, highlighting the interconnectedness of nature, people and birds. It was a popular theme and was selected to link with the theme of the Twelfth Conference of Parties (COP) of the Convention on Migratory Species, an EAAFP Partner. The meeting, to be held in Manila, Philippines from 23 to 28 October 2017, will mark the first time that the COP will be held in Asia.

The COP specifically links to attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by governments around the world two years ago. Read more

She has shepherded the Partnership through six Meetings of Partners, often taking the lead responsibility in developing and agenda and badgering Partners into producing workplans and reports (a thankless task, if ever there was one!).
