WCC Accepted motions now available online

Following the closing of the motions submission process for the IUCN World Conservation Congress, all motions were reviewed for their scientific and technical characteristics.  The Motions Working Group assessed motions against the admissibility requirements set out in the IUCN Statutes and Rules of Procedure of the World Conservation Congress.

Proponents of motions that were either rejected or merged have been informed, and in accordance with Rule 62ter, they may formally appeal the decision.  Appeals need to be brought to the Congress Preparatory Committee (CPC), who is acting as appeals body. They must be made jointly by the proponent and co-sponsors of the motion and should be sent by e-mail to motions@iucn.org by noon GMT/UTC on 15 April 2016 at the latest.

All accepted motions can now be consulted online and have been posted in the language in which they were originally submitted.  Translations into the other official IUCN languages are currently being undertaken and will be available online on 18 April.

The CPC’s decisions on appeals will be communicated to the proponents before the start of the online discussion on motions which will begin on 2 May 2016 and will close on 3 July 2016.  More information and guidance on the online discussion process will follow soon.
