Bioamazon Newsletter Edition 18

Dez 22, 2022 | ACTO, Bioamazon Project, Bioamazon 18th edition Nov-Dec

In this newsletter no. 18 presents to you the main actions carried out in November and December by the Permanent Secretariat of the Amazon Cooperation Treaty Organization (SP/ACTO).

We were successful in participating in the 19th Conference of the Parties to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), held in November in Panama City, and in the 15th Conference of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), in December, in Montreal, Canada. The parallel events held by ACTO were privileged spaces to provide transparency to our actions and dialogue with participants.

At CITES COP 19, we presented our work with Amazonian countries for the protection of Amazonian tree species, the Regional Amazonian Observatory and the Technical Report on Illegal Traffiking in Five Species from Appendix I of CITES Emblematics for the Amazon Region. At CBD COP 15, we discussed the global importance of the Amazon, with the pre-launch of the results of the Rapid Assessment of Biological Diversity and Ecosystem Services in the Amazon.

we also share that the UN General Assembly granted the status of Permanent Observer to ACTO, in addition to the news about the institution’s participation in several international events.
