Discussion Group 1

Draft Report on the Independent Evaluation of the Action Plan

Under this discussion group, participants are invited to provide feedback and general comments on the draft report on the independent evaluation of the capacity-building Action Plan prepared by a Consultant. In particular, participants are invited to express their views on the main findings and recommendations presented in the draft report.

Among other things, the draft report recommends that two documents be prepared to replace the current Action Plan, i.e. (i) a Framework for Capacity-Building under the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety, which would be a more elaborated reference/guidance tool largely based on the current Action Plan; and (ii) a Capacity-Building Action Plan for the Effective Implementation of the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety, which would be a results-oriented global plan of action with a prioritised list of specific actions, targets and a limited number of indicators, closely aligned with the strategic ojective and operational objectives under focal area 2 of the Strategic Plan for the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety (2011-2020) adopted by the COP-MOP at its fifth meeting. Participants are invited to express their opinions on whether they support this particular recommendation and if so make proposals on the possible structure and content of the two documents.
