The UNEP/AEWA Secretariat would like to inform you that an extraordinary Meeting of the Standing Committee has been scheduled to take place on 28 July 2021 upon request by the Standing Committee. The Committee will, inter alia, discuss and decide on the venue, format and date of the 8th Session of the Meeting of the Parties (MOP8) to AEWA in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
MOP8 is scheduled to take place on 5 – 9 October 2021 in Budapest at the kind invitation of the Government of Hungary.
