IFAW Proposal for ending the ivory trade

IFAW Proposal for ending the ivory trade

The document prepared by the Secretariat at the
request of the Standing Committee, first and foremost,
would delay the final decision on the Decision-making
Mechanism (DMM) for a process of trade in ivory until
CoP17. Given the setback in the process caused by
a DMM study report that was roundly rejected by the
Parties at SC62 and that failed to adequately fulfill the
terms of reference provided by the Standing Committee
in SC61 Doc. 44.4, a delay in the final development
of the DMM until CoP17 is warranted, and
should be supported by the Parties.
