The Joint Meeting of the Bern Convention Network of Special Focal Points on Eradication of Illegal Killing, Trapping and Trade in Wild Birds (Bern SFPs Network) and the CMS Intergovernmental Task Force on Illegal Killing, Taking and Trade of Migratory Birds in the Mediterranean (MIKT) took place in Sliema, Malta, on 22-23 June. The meeting was organised in co-operation with the CMS, at the kind invitation of the Government of Malta.

The main objective of the meeting was the development and possible adoption of a joint Scoreboard for monitoring and assessing progress on the eradication of IKB at national level. This IKB Scoreboard proposal is intended to provide the national governments with a tool that, when endorsed by the Bern Convention and CMS, would be an internationally recognized method to provide an objective, fact-based assessment of the current status of illegal killing of birds at national level, and measure the progress of the implementation by States of their commitments related to this area.
