Decisions of the Conference of the Parties to CITES in effect after the 18th meeting
This list of Decisions has been produced in accordance with Resolution Conf. 4.6 (Rev. CoP18) of the Conference of the Parties. It contains the Decisions (other than Resolutions) adopted at the 18th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to CITES (CoP18, Geneva, 2019) as well as the Decisions adopted at previous meetings that remain in effect after the 18th meeting.
The Decisions in this section are grouped by subject, in accordance with Resolution Conf. 4.6 (Rev. CoP18).
Every Decision that was adopted at CoP18 has a number starting with '18', e.g. Decision 18.1. Every Decision that was adopted at a previous meeting and remains valid is included here with its original number, e.g. Decision 14.69. If the Conference of the Parties amended a Decision at a meeting after the one at which it was adopted, the original number of that Decision is followed by the indication ‘(Rev. CoPXX)’, where 'XX' represents the number of the meeting at which the amendment was adopted. For example, Decision 16.162 (Rev. CoP18) was adopted by the Conference of the Parties at its 16th meeting and amended at its 18th meeting.
* For the purpose of these Decisions, “indigenous peoples and local communities” is understood to include rural communities.
