SUBMISSION OF VIEWS ON A DRAFT REPORTING FRAMEWORK FOR THE POWPA

[#956]
At its fourteenth meeting, the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA-14), in recommendation XIV/4, requested the Executive Secretary to prepare for consideration by the Conference of the Parties at its tenth meeting, a reporting framework on national implementation of the programme of work on protected areas, taking into account the draft framework contained in document UNEP/CBD/SBSTTA/14/5/Add.1, submissions made by the SBSTTA at its 14th meeting, and further consultations through an e-forum and other means.

Accordingly a revised draft reporting framework based upon the submissions made at SBSTTA 14 was prepared and is attached to this discussion post (also see online notification at http://www.cbd.int/doc/notifications/2010/ntf-2010-117-pa-en.pdf). The Secretariat invites Parties, other Governments and relevant organizations to send comments on this draft revised reporting framework to the Secretariat (secretariat@cbd.int) at their earliest convenience, but no later than 9 July 2010.  Comments may also be submitted here. Please login to the CBD website in order to post comments to this discussion forum.

RE: SUBMISSION OF VIEWS ON A DRAFT REPORTING FRAMEWORK FOR THE POWPA

[#957]
A question has come from Micronesia; our protected area focal point, Ms. Alissa Takesy asks:
"Seeking your clarification on how the above mentioned reporting framework differs from the National Profile on the Implementation of PoWPA we submitted at our Asia-Pacific Regional PoWPA Workshop in Dehradun, India last October?  Appreciate your assistance on this matter."

In response to Alissa, and for others who may be wondering the same thing:
The reporting framework is not fundamentally different from what we used in the regional workshops except:
(i) goals 3.1, 3.3 and 3.5 were dealt with separately
(ii) goals 4.1 and .4.2 were also separated
(iii) some language edits to make the questions more clear.
The draft reporting framework was submitted for consideration by SBSTTA 14.  Some countries felt that while they broadly agree with the contents, it may be better to give countries some more time to look into the contents and then consider it for adoption by COP 10. Accordingly SBSTTA requested the Executive Secretary to seek comments on the revised format taking into account the submissions made in the meeting and further discussions. Hence this notification.

We look forward to receiving your comments.
