CMS COP 12 The 12th Meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Migratory Species of Wild Animals will convene from 23-28 October 2017, in Manila, Philippines, under the theme “Their Future is Our Future – Sustainable Development for Wildlife & People.”

Over 50 side events will be held during the meeting. Side events are an excellent opportunity for a wide range of organizations, from governments and international organizations, to civil society and private sector organizations, to highlight an array of important migratory species issues. These events provide a platform for information dissemination, capacity building, policy discussions and legitimizing global governance.
