Strengthening capacity (knowledge, skills, institutions and other resources) is one of the important objectives identified in the AEWA Strategic Plan 2019-2027 for effective implementation of the Agreement.  The Plan foresees information on current gaps and future priorities at international level being collected to guide action on this.

Accordingly, the AEWA Secretariat has launched a survey today, for which we would warmly welcome your input.

The short questionnaire has just three sections in which you are invited to identify the specific areas which you feel deserve most attention.  There is space to add any other comments or suggestions you may wish to provide. The survey should take only 10-20 minutes of your time.

The results will be analysed and presented to the next Meeting of the Parties in 2022.

It will be important to reflect a good breadth and depth of opinions and ideas on this from all interests and all parts of the Agreement area, so we would encourage you all to please complete the questionnaire and return it at your earliest convenience, and no later than Friday, 14 January 2022.

Please send your responses to
