The focus of the project and the methodolgy is on plant species listed in App. II of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and aims to provide a tool for CITES authorities and other stakeholders along trade and control chains to evaluate exisiting resource inventory and assessment information with regard to their appropiateness, scientific rigour and correct interpretation. The workshop is meant to present a first draft of the methodology to selected international experts, for review and evaluation, in order to improve and optimise the draft. After finalisation, the methodology will be published as a freely available document.
