CITES
CITES CoP16In the morning, participants convened in an extraordinary plenary to discuss the Rules of Procedure. The work of the Committees resumed before lunch. Committee I discussed saiga antelope and snakes. Committee II reviewed CITES resolutions. During lunch the Working Group on Rules of Procedure met.

In the afternoon, Committee I resumed discussions on snake trade and conservation. It then reviewed: sharks and stingrays; queen conch; and Madagascar. The Committee also began consideration of agarwood-producing taxa.

Committee II addressed: the review of resolutions; conflicts of interest; the CITES Strategic Vision; cooperation with other multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs) and with other biodiversity-related conventions; and the International Consortium on Combating Wildlife Crime (ICCWC). Discussions on arrangements for meetings were deferred to Wednesday, and an informal group on sturgeon was formed in anticipation of discussions next week. Working groups were also formed on the queen conch and conflicts of interest.
