Title CBD Proposals for the Design and Implementation of Incentive Measures
Description During its sixth meeting, in the Hague in April 2002, the Conference of the Parties endorsed a set of practical principles and guidelines for the design and implementation of incentive measures (see Annex I to Decision VI/15). The proposals identify and explain the key elements that need to be taken into consideration when using incentive measures, and also provide guidelines for selecting appropriate and complementary measures. They were developed by an international expert workshop and further reviewed by the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice at its seventh meeting.
