The 14th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS COP14) will convene to review implementation of the Convention. CMS, also known as the Bonn Convention, recognizes that States must be the protectors of migratory species that live within or pass through their national jurisdictions and aims to conserve terrestrial, marine, and avian migratory species throughout their ranges.

On 14 July 2023, CMS Executive Secretary Amy Fraenkel announced that “due to unforeseen circumstances, and after consultations with the Host government, UNEP, and the UN Country Team, as well as communications and consultations with the Chairs of the CMS Standing Committee and Scientific Council, the dates of COP14 and its associated meetings and events will be changed to a date in early 2024.”

On 26 July 2023, the Secretariat confirmed that COP14 will be held at the Silk Road Samarkand Conference Center in Samarkand, Uzbekistan, from 12 to 17 February 2024.
