After addressing a packed agenda, CMS COP11 adopted 35 resolutions, including, on: the lion, that will work towards an Appendix II listing proposal to be presented at COP12; the Strategic Plan for Migratory Species 2015-2023; the Programme of Work on Climate Change and Migratory Species; the Central Asian Mammals Initiative; and the Renewable Energy and Migratory Species.

After considering proposals submitted by parties to amend the appendices of the Convention, the CoP decided to list 33 species, including the silky shark and European eel.

The COP welcomed the offer by the Philippines to host COP12. Several parties and NGOs made closing statements praising CMS for such a remarkable number of species listings and resolutions adopted.

In closing the meeting, Minister Tapia highlighted that COP11 participants “made borders disappear” by making firm decisions and commitments for action. The meeting was gaveled to a close at 2:08 pm.
