Written questions in advance

As provided in paragraph 6 of annex IV to decision 2/CP 17, Parties were allowed to submit written questions in advance of the FSV workshop. The secretariat was in contact with all Parties (via National Focal Points) to inform them of the steps for submitting such written questions in advance.

For the fifth workshop of FSV in Bonn, the period to submit written questions in advance was open to all Parties from 1 to 31 March 2018.


1 - 31 March 2018

Other interested Parties may submit, through a dedicated on-line portal, questions to the non-Annex I Parties undergoing FSV at SBI 48.

1 - 30 April 2018

Non-Annex I Parties undergoing FSV may provide responses to the questions received, through a dedicated on-line portal.

4 May 2018

FSV workshop. Non-Annex I Parties will make a presentation on their BURs, followed by a question and answer session among Parties.

The working language for the question and answer process was English.

Other organizational matters

Time allocation: The workshop comprised a two-hour session on 4 May 2018. Each Party was allocated 40 minutes on average, as follows:

a. Presentation –20 minutes per Party on average to present their BUR;
b. Question and answer –20 minutes per Party on average after each presentation.

In the event that the Party undergoing FSV received none or very few questions, the total time allocated to that Party was shortened. Upon completion of the question and answer session for one Party, the next Party was invited to begin its presentation.

The session was also streamlined live and made publicly available on the secretariat's website.

Output of the FSV: A record of the FSV, summarizing the presentation by the Party and corresponding interaction with other Parties, will be prepared, under the guidance of the SBI Chair, for each Party undergoing the FSV. This, together with the summary report, will constitute the final output of the ICA for each Party.
