The CMS Secretariat, in co-operation with Caribbean Community and Common
Market (CARICOM) and the UNEP Caribbean Environment Programme, organized the
first Caribbean regional workshop from 31 August to 2 September 2016 in
Bridgetown, Barbados. The workshop caters to countries that are not Parties
to CMS, but could benefit from acceding to it.
The workshop includes sessions on implementation, advice for National Focal
Points (NFPs), and two field visits to a shorebird refuge and a sea turtle
nesting beach. Its main focus is to emphasize the importance of the Caribbean
for conserving biodiversity.
