In accordance with Decision 19.197 on Conservation of amphibians (Amphibia spp.), the Secretariat is preparing two online interdisciplinary workshops for CITES Authorities and other relevant authorities and stakeholders about amphibian species in international trade.
This is the first of two workshops, both of which will cover the same issues. The geographical focus of this first workshop encompasses North America, Central and South America and the Caribbean. Working languages are English and Spanish, and interpretation will be provided.
This workshop consists of two three-hour sessions per day, scheduled at 14:00-17:00 CET (Central European Time) on 27 and 28 November 2023.
