20.Takes note of the request of the COP-MOP/6, as set out in decision BS-VI/7 paragraph 20, to the COP to "explore the possibility of merging the BI Voluntary Trust Fund, which facilitates participation of Parties in the Biosafety Protocol, with the BZ Voluntary Trust Fund, which facilitates participation of Parties in the Convention process, taking into account advice to be provided by the Executive Secretary and the Executive Director of UNEP";

22.Welcomes the information provided by the Executive Secretary on the measurable indicators of achievements and performance for the programme budget, set out in annex II to decision X/45 and requests the Executive Secretary to continue to report on these indicators and to suggest possible improvements to them to the Conference of the Parties at its twelfth meeting aimed at promoting results based management and budgeting notwithstanding the need for a programme budget;
23.Requests the Executive Secretary to prepare and submit a budget for Secretariat services and the programme of work of the Convention for the biennium 2015-2016 for the consideration of the Conference of the Parties at its twelfth meeting, and to provide five practical and rigorous alternatives for the BY Trust Fund budget based on:
(a)Making an assessment of the required rate of growth for the programme budget BY Trust Fund;
(b)Increasing the core programme budget (BY Trust Fund) from 2013-2014 level by 7.5 per cent in nominal terms;
(c)Increasing the core programme budget (BY Trust Fund) to an amount that represents a 7.5 per cent increase in nominal terms of the combined total of the BY and any distinct costs of the Nagoya Protocol over the BY Trust Fund total amount for 2013-2014;
(d)Maintaining the core programme budget (BY Trust Fund) at the 2013-2014 level in nominal terms;
(e)Setting a core programme budget (BY Trust Fund) for 2015-2016 that maintains the combined total of BY Trust Fund and any distinct costs for the Nagoya Protocol at the same nominal total amount as the BY Trust Fund for 2013-2014;

27.Notes with concern and regret that the core programme budget (BY) does not contain adequate finance for all five intersessional priority meetings identified by the Parties for the biennium 2013-14, which has resulted in finance for the ICNP-3 and Article 8(j) meetings being dependent on generous voluntary funding which is not always as predictable as the core budget and,therefore, decides that the allocation of funds from voluntary budget (BE) for intersessional meetings identified as a priority by the Parties should not become standard practice in future budgets;
28.Welcomes the generous offer to fund an intersessional meeting on ICNP-3 by the Government of Japan and the generous offers to fund an Article 8(j) meeting in 2013 made by the Governments of Denmark, Finland, India, Norway, Republic of Korea, Sweden and by the African Group;
29.Invites the Executive Secretary to bear in mind the need for periodic review of classification of staff positions, subject to the UN Staff Rules and Regulations and within the limits of available positions in Table 2 staffing decisions, including upgrading and downgrading, taking into account the functional review in paragraph 25 giving priority in undertaking the review to the post of national reporting and doing so in a timely manner.
