Incentives for the implementation of the Convention
| Directed to Parties
|| Parties that develop incentive measures for
the effective implementation of the Convention are encouraged to include
relevant details in their biennial reports.
|| Parties are encouraged to consider the adoption
of standard operating procedures to complete the formalities required for
trade in CITES-listed species in an efficient manner. Management Authorities
are encouraged to liaise with national ministries and agencies responsible
for regulation and promotion of exports and imports in their countries to
benefit from the expertise and support they offer in this area.
|| The Parties shall consider practical ways to
enhance stakeholder engagement in the implementation of the Convention (e.g.
promoting good practices and codes of conduct that facilitate the work of
CITES authorities, help to reduce time-frames for the completion of CITES
procedures and enhance the role of the private sector in intelligence gathering
to identify and prosecute illegal traders).
| Directed to the Secretariat
|| Using inter alia information provided
by Parties in their biennial reports, the Secretariat should conduct a survey
of the fees for CITES permits and cost of CITES-related administrative services,
and provide basic guidance to Parties on how cost-recovery programmes can
be designed and used for internalizing the cost of implementing the Convention
in this regard.
|| Subject to external funding, the Secretariat
shall continue its cooperation with the BioTrade Initiative of the United
Nations Conference on Trade and Development under a signed Memorandum of
Understanding to ensure the conservation of wild species subject to international
trade and promote private sector compliance with CITES requirements and
|| The Secretariat shall report on the progress
made with regard to the implementation of Decisions 14.45 and 14.46 at the
15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties.
