The Collaborative Partnership on Sustainable Wildlife Management Wildlife (CPW) Forum will take place on the margins of the “One with Nature”: World of Hunting and Nature Exhibition. It is organized by CPW, in a hybrid format, in-person and online. Registrations to the Forum are now open and free-of-charge.
The Forum will, in the context of the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework, discuss how to move from theory towards further implementation of policies and actions in relation to sustainable wildlife management. The Forum will be structured around four thematic sessions:
- contribution of wildlife to food security and livelihoods;
- management of human-wildlife conflicts;
- wildlife trade, offtake and hunting; and
- animal health and One Health approach.
CPW is a voluntary partnership of international organizations with substantive mandates and programmes for the sustainable use and conservation of wildlife resources. The mission of the CPW is to promote conservation through the sustainable management of terrestrial vertebrate wildlife in all biomes and geographic areas and to increase cooperation and coordination on sustainable wildlife management issues among its members and partners.
Funding for Earth Negotiations Bulletin coverage of the Wildlife Forum 2021 has been provided by the Hungarian Government, through the International Council for Game and Wildlife Conservation (CIC) in their capacity as Patrons of the One with Nature Exhibition, and as the lead CPW partner organizing the Wildlife Forum.
