Background

International Agreements

With the trans-boundary nature of many of the world’s environmental problems, an increasing number of multilateral environmental agreements exist with implications for national and regional policies.

These agreements inform the global agenda, establish conservation principles and provide tools for cooperation.

As the EU often forms an influential block at these meetings, it is vital that FACE follows and contributes to these meetings to represent the interests and insights of European hunters.

This ensures FACE is informed of international conservation trends, learns about other conservation experiences, stands up for the interests of hunters, raises the profile of hunters as conservationists, as well as finding ways of working with other conservationists.

FACE with its Members cover and actively participate in key international agreements, providing relevant expertise, coordination, synergies and awareness.

Much of our work on International Agreements is done in collaboration with our partners. This work links directly to our Nature Conservation work, is applied to our European policy work and by FACE Members at national levels.
