Pilot training session on chairing meetings of the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm conventions

Glion, Switzerland, from 3 to 5 March 2014

While the three conventions have enjoyed good fortune in the past in finding qualified chairs for their meetings, there are challenges in finding willing and experienced chairs from all regions and in maintaining gender and regional diversity among the chairs.
