Issue Date
The UK's involvement in the CAFF CBIRD group is driven by the following priorities: Our UK Arctic Policy Framework which has a commitment to help understand and protect the Arctic environment and is based on the principle of respect for the sovereign rights of the Arctic States, the indigenous peoples and others who live there, and for the Arctic environment; our implementation of multi-lateral environmental agreements which are relevant to the Arctic (AEWA, CBD, CITES and others) including related targets such as the Aichi targets; our desire to cooperate in the conservation of migratory wildlife we share with the Arctic; and, our willingness to share the data we gather, whether from the UK or elsewhere, on such shared wildlife.
