CITES
CITES CoP16 In the morning, the extraordinary plenary completed its discussions on Rules of Procedure. Committee I discussed agarwood, bigleaf mahogany, periodic review of the appendices and other matters. Committee II addressed CITES and livelihoods, wildlife trade policy reviews, capacity building and other issues.

Committee II Chair Gabel noted that agenda items 73 (proposed revision of Resolution Conf.10.9 on consideration of proposals for the transfer of African elephant populations from Appendix I to Appendix II), 36 (decision-making mechanism (DMM) for a process of trade in ivory) and 37 (proposal to amend Decision 14.77 on a DMM for a future trade in elephant ivory) would be discussed together on Thursday.

The Working Group on Conflicts and the informal working group on sturgeon met today. Committee II called for a small working group on CITES and livelihoods. Mexico announced that the Working Group on IPBES would meet Thursday.
