At its tenth meeting, the COP-MOP, in decision CP-10/3
, adopted the Implementation Plan for the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety as a follow up to the Strategic Plan for the period 2011-2020.
The Implementation Plan is a framework of broad desirable achievements and accomplishments to help guide Parties in their implementation of the Protocol and measure progress in this regard for the period up to 2030. For each goal a number of objectives and indicators are outlined. Outcomes describe what the effect will be of achieving each goal.
The Implementation Plan is complemented by the Capacity-building Action Plan for the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety
with the purpose of facilitating the development and strengthening of the capacities of Parties to implement the Protocol.
The COP-MOP urged Parties and invited other Governments to review and align their national action plans and programmes relevant to the implementation of the Protocol, including their national biodiversity strategies and action plans, with the implementation plan.
The COP-MOP recognized the complementarity of the Implementation Plan to the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework
, agreed at the 15th meeting of the Conference of Parties and that the Implementation Plan can contribute to the achievement of its goals and targets relevant to biosafety, especially for Parties to the Convention that are also Parties to the Cartagena Protocol.
