The Secretariat has prepared a document proposing two sets of draft consolidated resolutions relating to Appendix I
species: Resolutions pertaining to hunting trophies of Appendix I species
and Resolutions pertaining to the conservation of specific Appendix I species
. The Secretariat prepared this document in response to Decision 13.21
, which directs the Secretariat to prepare a consolidated resolution concerning the enforcement of trade controls for all Appendix I species, in consultation with the Standing Committee, for CoP14. This was first suggested in CoP13 Document 26 Great apes
in order to facilitate a more strategic approach on enforcement issues concerning Appendix I species.
The first draft consolidated resolution in Document 20.1
merges five existing resolutions, pertaining to hunting quotas for Appendix I species: two general resolutions with guidance to the Parties, and three specific resolutions pertaining to hunting of leopards, markhor, and black rhinoceros.
The second draft consolidated resolution merges four existing resolutions pertaining to the conservation and trade in African and Asian rhinoceroses, Tibetan antelope, tigers and other Asian big cats, and great apes.
