Workshop on CAMI

From 16 to 19 April on the Isle of Vilm a regional workshop was held on the midterm review of the Central Asian Mammals Initiative (CAMI). During the seminar further steps for the implementation of activities on the conservation of CAMI species has been discussed as well as procedural issues within CAMI, like reporting, monitoring and preparation to CMS COP13 in 2020. The workshop also included a session with a discussion of ways to foster national implementation of the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS) and CAMI with Government representatives.

Activities within CAMI are in many ways complementary to CADI project. Therefore, the progress of cooperation between CADI and CAMI and further plans of collaboration have been discussed.

The Central Asian Mammals Initiative (CAMI) was adopted by CMS Parties at the 11th Meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP11) in 2014. CAMI represents a platform for the coordination of activities on conservation of key mammal species on a regional scale as well as a joint initiative to mitigate threats to these species.
