International Companion Animal Management Coalition
ICAM supports the development and use of humane and effective companion animal population management worldwide. The coalition was formed in 2006 as a forum for discussion on global dog and cat management issues and is a registered charity (CIO Association) with the Charity Commission of England and Wales (Charity number 1192921).
The motivation to form a coalition came from the realisation that several of the main organisations working on companion animal management had similar views and ways of working, but no forum where arising issues could be discussed.
Our key goals are to:
- Share ideas and data
- Discuss issues relevant to population management and welfare
- Agree definitions and hence improve understanding
- Provide guidance as a collegial and cohesive group
The management team is comprised of the main funding bodies for companion animal population management globally and key specialist groups. The team is kept at a restricted size for efficiency.
