Geneva, 16 March 2001
Funding mechanisms for the conservation of species of wild fauna and flora
1. Decision 11.78, adopted at the 11th meeting of the Conference of the Parties, directs the Standing Committee to form a working group to analyse and evaluate existing funding mechanisms made available by the Parties for the conservation of wild fauna and flora.
2. To assist the Standing Committee to implement this Decision, the Management Authority of France has prepared the attached document consisting of three parts, namely: an Introductory note, an Identification sheet and an Information sheet.
3. Management Authorities are requested, in consultation with national institutions, to complete the Information sheet by providing information on the mechanisms that have been established nationally to finance the conservation of their fauna and flora (e.g. import levies, permit fees or wildlife management fees) and on the proceeds that are re-invested in conservation programmes.
4. Parties are requested to return the completed Information sheet to the Secretariat by 20 April 2001 to enable the Secretariat to provide this information to the working group to be formed during the 45th meeting of the Standing Committee in June 2001.
