This Sourcebook was developed as part of a UNEP project funded by the European Union and the Government of Switzerland that aimed to provide NFPs and other stakeholders with options to achieve enhanced implementation through strengthened cooperation. It focuses on six global Conventions: the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS); the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES); the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands (Ramsar Convention); the Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage (WHC); the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGRFA); and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).

Introduction

The aim of this Sourcebook is to provide National Focal Points (NFPs) of the major Biodiversityrelated Conventions (see Box 1), as well as other stakeholders working on these conventions, with options to achieve enhanced implementation of the conventions through enhanced cooperation (for key terms such as cooperation, coordination, collaboration, and synergies see Box 2). These options are informed by examples of cooperation between the different actors and existing guidance produced by the conventions and other international organisations.
