ACAP’s Fifth Session of its Meeting of Parties gets started in Tenerife with a Heads of Delegation meeting

With all 13 Parties to the Agreement attending the Fifth Session of its Meeting of Parties (MoP5) in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in Spain’s Canary Islands there was a full house for the customary Heads of Delegation meeting that took place yesterday afternoon before the session proper gets underway today.

Before getting down to discussing the week's proceedings, it was an opportunity for greetings and introductions in the main salon of the Iberostar Grand Hotel Mencey, well set out by the session's Spanish hosts.
