Membership of CMS and its Instruments

In addition to the current 119 Parties to CMS, a further 35 countries are Member States to instruments, while many of the 119 are also Parties and signatories to Agreements and MOUs (e.g. France is Party to five of the seven Agreements and signatory to five of the MOUs, and Senegal is Party to one Agreement and a signatory to six MOUs). In many cases joining one of these instruments has been a first step to join the mother Convention.
