Peruís efforts to better manage its Mahogany harvesting and trade draws praise from CITES

Peruís efforts to better manage its Mahogany harvesting and trade draws praise from CITES The Standing Committee of the International Convention for the Protection of Endangered Species (CITES) concluded their annual meeting on 16 August this year in Geneva.
This meeting was attended by over 300 representatives from 172 member countries of the convention, NGOs, intergovernmental bodies and private sector representatives.
In previous meetings CITES expressed serious concern over the management of mahogany harvesting in the Peruvian Amazon. CITES was of the opinion that the survival of Mahogany was being threatened through over harvesting and by illegal logging and called for immediate action by the authorities in Peru.
The efforts by Peru to address the concerns of CITES, which includes a drastic reduction of the mahogany export quota, drew praise from many members of the CITES Standing Committee.
