IFAW African elephant fund action plan

IFAW African elephant fund action plan

The document submitted by Nigeria and Rwanda (CoP16 Doc. 53.3) contains two items for consideration by the Parties: a decision calling for the Standing Committee to request funding from UNEP to pay for translations costs associated with the implementation of the African Elephant Action Plan (AEAP) and a draft resolution urging Parties and stakeholders to contribute to the African Elephant Fund to adequately resource the successful accomplishment of the prioritized objectives of the AEAP. IFAW urges Parties to support both proposals, and only notes that language similar to that proposed by Nigeria and Rwanda in a new resolution of the Parties also appears in the draft revision of Res. Conf. 10.10 (Rev. CoP15), which will be considered by the CoP under agenda item 26, and which IFAW also supports.
