Call for external funding for CITES projects
Any project or activity to be implemented by the CITES Secretariat
that is not funded from the regular annual contributions from
the Parties (the CITES Trust Fund) requires funding from external
sources. These externally funded projects or activities are usually
the result of Resolutions and Decisions adopted at the meetings
of Conference of the Parties.
Attached is a list
of projects that the Secretariat plans to carry out that are
based on Decisions adopted at the 13th meeting of the Conference
of the Parties (Bangkok, 2004). However the implemenation of the
projects is contingent on the provision of financial support from
external sources. Donor Parties, aid agencies, intergovernmental
organizations and non-governmental organizations are urged to
assist in the provision of funding for these projects.
