At the international level, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has been collaborating with the CITES Secretariat, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and the Organization of Eastern Caribbean Countries (OECS) to enhance comprehension of the interrelationship between CITES and fisheries legal regimes and build capacity for CITES-compliant trade. 

This side event will share the latest findings from these partnerships, as well as the experiences and lessons learned from regions where FAO-CITES legal training workshops for the implementation of the Convention in the fisheries sector were carried out.
