EUROBATS Intersessional Working Groups

At the time being 16 Intersessional Working Groups (IWG) actively work on different bat conservation issues in order to fulfill the requirements of the effective resolutions together with three ad hoc IWG which focus on more specific issues. Several IWGs have finished their work and now dissolved. 

For the information on the IWGs' membership see Annex II to the EUROBATS StC9-AC19 Record
