Each AEWA Contracting Party is required to designate a National Focal Point (NFP). National Focal Points (NFP) are government-appointed officials responsible for overseeing, guiding and promoting the implementation of AEWA nationally and liaising with the Secretariat and other AEWA stakeholders, as well as their counterparts in other Contracting Parties.

The most important aspects of the NFP role and interaction with other AEWA stakeholders are outlined in the Terms of Reference. To designate a NFP for your country, please fill in the designation form and send it back to the AEWA Secretariat.
