This is a UK contribution to the Convention on Migratory Species, also known as the Bonn Convention, which aims to conserve terrestrial, aquatic and avian migratory species throughout their range. CMS brings together the States through which migratory animals pass and provides a platform for internationally coordinated conservation measures. CMS is used as a framework, with different models employed to form individual conservation agreements under its auspices. The model of agreement used to protect species under CMS, from legally binding treaty to memorandum of understanding, is adapted to the requirements of particular regions. Contributions to the CMS convention not only enable the UK to participate in its decision-making processes and the creation or maintenance of individual conservation agreements, but the contributions also support wider activities undertaken under CMS. These range from task forces, such as the renewable energy task force (reconciling renewable energy developments with the conservation of migratory species) to capacity building in developing countries and countries with economies in transition (enabling them to reap the environmental, social and economic benefits offered by full compliance with MEAs).
