Expert Groups

CAFF may establish expert groups with specific mandates related to key activities.

These expert groups ensure that scientists, conservationists, and managers have a forum to promote, facilitate, and coordinate conservation, management, and research activities of mutual concern. These groups have been invaluable in synthesising, coordinating and publishing research.
