2022/001: 8th Session of the Meeting of the Parties to AEWA (MOP8)

The UNEP/AEWA Secretariat is pleased to announce that the 8th Session of the Meeting of the Parties to AEWA will take place on 26 – 30 September 2022 in Budapest at the kind invitation of the Government of Hungary.

The Government of Hungary, which had originally invited the MOP8 to take place in October 2021 in the framework of the ‘One with Nature’ exhibition in Budapest, renewed its kind invitation after MOP8 had to be postponed due to the pandemic and confirmed the dates of 26 – 30 September 2022.

The dates were agreed between the host and the Secretariat and in close consultation with the Standing Committee, taking into account the international calendar of meetings and potential developments of the ongoing pandemic towards the autumn 2022.

The deadline for the submission of proposals of amendments to the Agreement and/or its annexes is 28 April 2022.

The Secretariat would like to take this opportunity to express its appreciation to the Government of Hungary for the past efforts undertaken to organize MOP8 and for its flexibility to postpone and still host the MOP8 in 2022.

For more details, please contact the Secretariat at aewa.secretariat@unep-aewa.org.
