Setting Priorities for the Implementation of the Central Asian Mammals Initiative (CAMI)

27.04.2017 - 01.05.2017

German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation and the CMS Secretariat
Experts on migratory species and biodiversity conservation in Central Asia, representatives of MEAs and NGOs actively involved in CAMI, on invitation only.

The Central Asian Mammals Initiative (CAMI) is a coherent framework for conservation action in the region, developed under the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS). Central Asia harbors vast and still largely interconnected grasslands, mountain and desert habitats, where large migratory animals are able to roam for thousands of kilometers. The region is one of the world's last hot spots for migrations, which is at threat due to increasing anthropogenic pressures. CMS CAMI covers 15 priority species, such as Snow leopards, Saiga antelopes, Wild camels, Asiatic cheetah, most of which are at least endangered and one third are threatened with extinction. In November 2014 CMS Parties adopted the Programme of Work for CAMI, which aims to improve the conservation status of Central Asian large migratory mammals and their habitats, addressing major threats to migratory species and closing gaps in existing conservation instruments. The goal of this expert workshop is to help address one of the most significant threats to large migratory mammals in Central Asia - the growing development of linear infrastructure across key habitats and migratory/movement corridors for these species.
