Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) CCAMLR undertook a first Performance Review in 2008. That Review encouraged CCAMLR to give additional consideration to capacity building. It suggested that cooperative programs could support the information needs of Article II of the CAMLR Convention in regard to the ecosystems approach to fisheries management to strengthen the engagement of all Members in the work of CCAMLR and reduce the reliance on a small number of Members (see www.ccamlr.org/node/76553 ). 2012 Ongoing
Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES)/ European Union, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), Regional Fisheries Management Organizations & Bodies (regional fisheries manageme Capacity-building activities 2017 2020 The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) is placed at the interface between sustainable use and international trade for fisheries, focusing on species that have declined to a level that requires strong trade and management measures to maintain or rebuilt stocks. CITES thus plays a well-targeted role in advancing the implementation of SDG 14 as a trade-related measure with effective compliance procedures.
