UN Environment Evaluation Office (2008)

This report discusses the results of the management study of the Agreement on the Conservation of Small Cetaceans of the Baltic and North Seas (ASCOBANS) secretariat undertaken from September- October 2008 at the request of the Meeting of the Parties (MOP) at their meeting of 12 December 2006. The objective of the study was to review the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the new arrangement for the ASCOBANS Secretariat. The study would determine if the merger had promoted synergies within the CMS family of Agreements and other MEAs, helped to heighten the profile of ASCOBANS and increased the secretariat's sustainability
