IUCN/TRAFFIC Analyses of Proposals to amend the CITES Appendices at CoP18


Welcome to the IUCN/TRAFFIC Analyses download page for the CITES CoP18 meeting.

The Analyses aim to provide as objective an assessment as possible of each proposal to amend the CITES Appendices, against the criteria elaborated in Resolution Conf. 9.24 (Rev. CoP17) and other Resolutions and Decisions that have been adopted by the Parties to CITES.

The below table includes links to download the Analyses in English (French and Spanish translations to follow) for each of the 57 proposals submitted for consideration at CoP18, as well as background information for proposals relating to the African elephant. The table is searchable by proposal number, proponent(s) and taxon. To download the Analyses for all proposals, click the ‘Download all’ button at the top or bottom of the table.

IUCN and TRAFFIC would like to acknowledge the generous support of the following donors for the production of the Analyses for CoP18: The European Union, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain, Switzerland, and WWF International. The Analyses do not necessarily reflect the views of the project’s donors.
