. Retirement of decisions

XI/12.Retirement of decisions

The Conference of the Parties,
Recognizing that the exercise of retiring its decisions may have higher added value if directed towards supporting the review of implementation of existing decisions and creating a good basis for the adoption of new decisions,
1.Decides to retire the decisions and elements of decisions adopted at its seventh meeting listed in the annex to the present decision;
2.Also decides to refocus the exercise towards supporting the review of implementation of existing decisions and creating a good basis for the adoption of new decisions by integrating the exercise and proposals for retirement into the preparation and adoption of new decisions on the same subject matter, wherever possible;
3.Requests the Executive Secretary to make proposals on how best to implement paragraph 2 above, while ensuring that decisions that do not fall within paragraph 2 can also be considered for retirement, for consideration by the Ad Hoc Open-ended Working Group on Review of Implementation of the Convention at its fifth meeting;
