Revision of the modalities and procedures for the IAR 

The first round of the IAR was launched during SBI 41 in Lima (Dec. 2014). By SBI 44 (Bonn, May 2016) all Annex I Parties completed the first IAR round.

Following the completion of the first round, Parties requested the SBI to revise the modalities and procedures used for the IAR, taking into account experience accumulated in the first round and Parties’ submissions. The secretariat received  one pdf-icon submission, which came from the EU on its views on the revision of the modalities and procedures.

At SBI 46 (Bonn, May 2017), Parties agreed to continue consideration of this matter at SBI 50 (June 2019).
