The purpose of this forum post is to remind you to prepare and submit your national report on the implementation of the Convention. This is in accordance with Article VI, paragraph 3, of the Convention, which calls upon Contracting Parties that are Range States of migratory species listed in Appendices I and II to inform the COP of their implementation of the Convention, at least six months prior to the meeting.
The national reporting format is available in the CMS Family Online Reporting System and should be filled online. The Report Form is not being produced in Word format and reports sent as an email cannot be accepted. Please submit the completed form to the Secretariat no later than 1 May 2014. The timely return of your country’s completed report will allow the Secretariat to submit a detailed global synthesis and analysis to the COP11. There is no guarantee that reports received after the deadline will be incorporated into the analysis and evaluation in time for the Conference.
The Online Reporting System is available at http://cms-family-ors.unep-wcmc.org/.
Should you require any clarification on the preparation of the Report, the Secretariat would be pleased to assist.
Thank you for your cooperation!
