About this Project

Status: Completed
Operational Plan: 2015 - 2016

This project will promote legal, sustainable and traceable trade of selected regional species that are listed in CITES’ Appendix II, through:

  1. the identification and prioritization of highly traded Appendix II species; followed by a comprehensive trade analysis aimed at identifying challenges and opportunities for improving their sustainable trade; and
  2. the establishment and launch of action plans to improve and strengthen regional collaboration and information exchange on selected Appendix II species groups in North America, in areas such as their identification, their source and purpose codes, and any non-detriment findings and their links with conservation, sustainable use, and development opportunities for indigenous and local communities.
