The sixth Meeting of the Parties to ACCOBAMS opened this Tuesday, November 22, 2016 in the presence of HSH the Sovereign Prince, the Minister of State and many leading personalities. It will run until November 25.
November 24 will mark the 20th anniversary of ACCOBAMS, the intergovernmental agreement to mitigate the threats to marine mammals, in particular by improving the state of knowledge of these animals and by implementing appropriate conservation measures.
In his speech Prince Albert underlined that “ACCOBAMS, the true ambassador for the protection of the oceans and the conservation of migratory species, has been able to serve as an example over 20 years in other areas of the world such as the Red Sea, the African coasts, the Pacific and the Caribbean.”
Since the creation of ACCOBAMS, member states have adopted numerous resolutions covering a wide range of topics relevant to the conservation of cetaceans in the Black Sea, the Mediterranean and the adjacent Atlantic area. The Permanent Secretariat has set up various forms of scientific cooperation aimed at acquiring a better knowledge of cetaceans and their environment and has developed collaborations with other international organisations.
HE Mr Serge Telle, Minister of State, HE Mr. Xavier Sticker, President of the Agreement, and Ms Florence Descroix-Comanducci, Executive Secretary also signed the amendment to the Headquarters Agreement for the Permanent Secretariat based in Monaco.
The National Assembly has welcomed the latest graduates to the Principality’s Police Force.
An incredible 12-month time lapse video showing the creation of Monaco’s mammoth land extension project has just been released.
Monaco has a new bailiff, or huissier as known locally, who was sworn in earlier this week.
General crime rates in the Principality dropped by a significant 16% between the years 2016 and 2019, and street crime by an impressive 52%.
AS Monaco’s Sporting Director, Antonio Cordon, whose departure was announced on Monday, July 10, left the club due to frustration over player departures, according to unconfirmed reports.
Cordon had signed up with League winners Monaco for three years, but lasted just one season. Although he was very well aware that several star players would be sold on for a huge profit, he felt he was not been given enough control over departures by club Vice President Vadim Vasilyev.
So far, Bernardo Silva has left for Manchester City while forward Valere Germain has returned to his native Marseille.
There is still wild speculation over the destinations of Kylain Mbappe, Benjamin Mendy and Fabinho, but all three are likely to leave this summer. Thomas Lemar has already agreed terms with Arsenal.
