Subsidiary Body on Implementation

Introduction


In 2014, the Conference of the Parties established the Subsidiary Body on Implementation (SBI) to replace the Ad Hoc Open-ended Working Group on Review of Implementation of the Convention, with the terms of reference contained in the annex to decision XII/26.

In Decision XII/12, the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity established the Subsidiary Body on Implementation (SBI) to replace the Ad Hoc Open-ended Working Group on Review of Implementation of the Convention, with the terms of reference contained in the annex to decision XII/26. The first meeting of the SBI was held on 2-6 May 2016 in Montreal, Canada.

The four functions and core areas of work of SBI consist of: (a) review of progress in implementation; (b) strategic actions to enhance implementation; (c) strengthening means of implementation; and (d) operations of the convention and the Protocols. The Bureau of the Conference of the Parties serves as the Bureau of the Subsidiary Body on Implementation.

The draft modus operandi on the organization and operation of SBI was submitted and approved by SBI at its first meeting, and submitted for the consideration of the Conference of the Parties at its thirteenth meeting.
