Briefing for the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES)

Briefing for the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES)

From the 26 until 30 September 2016, the 17th meeting of the Conference of the Parties of the "Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species" (CITES COP 17) took place in Johannesburg South Africa. Since CITES entered into force in 1975, such meetings are held every three years to review progress in the conservation of target species and consider adopting proposals to amend this list and improve Convention effectiveness. Given the recent accession of the European Union to CITES in April 2015 and the aims noted above, Ecologic Institute was commissioned by the European Parliament under an existing framework contract to prepare a briefing to the European Parliament's Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI). The briefing is available for download.
