Organised byConvention on Migratory Species (Secretariat)

The objective of the workshop was manifold, including the preparation of the
pacific region for effective participation in COP 11, improved negotiation
involvement and strengthened regional viewpoints. The workshop was also the
occasion to introduce training tools (esp. the CMS Family Manual), improve
the visibility of the region during the COP11 and increasing the membership
of Pacific countries to the CMS & other instruments (Sharks, Pacific
Cetaceans MoUs). 

In terms of results, the activity enhanced regional capacity for CMS
implementation activities and promoted regional implementation and support
mechanisms in the Pacific. The establishment of informal working groups on
improving implementation and ecological networks across the region (examples
of sharks and rays, and turtles and seabirds) was also a milestone.
