Forum on the impact of the implementation of response measures
 

Overview of the intergovernmental process related to this issue

Recognizing the importance of avoiding or minimizing negative impacts of response measures, the Conference of the Parties (COP) at its 17th session (Durban, 2011) adopted a work programme on the impact of the implementation of response measures under the subsidiary bodies. The COP also established a forum on the impact of the implementation of response measures, which shall be convened by the Chairs of the subsidiary bodies, to implement the work programme and to provide a platform allowing Parties to share, in an interactive manner, information, experiences, case studies, best practices and views.

Details on the implementation of the work programme can be find here.

After a review of the work convened from SB 36 (Bonn, 2012) to SB 39 (Warsaw, 2013), the COP at its 21st session (Paris, 2015) decided to continue and improve the forum on the impact of the implementation of response measures, which shall provide a platform allowing Parties to share, in an interactive manner, information, experiences, case studies, best practices and views, and to facilitate assessment and analysis of the impact of the implementation of response measures, with a view to recommending specific actions.
