FCA Policy Briefing: FCTC Reporting Arrangements

Recommendations:

  • The FCTC reporting instrument should continue to include questions specific to each of the FCTC guidelines, as well as provide Parties with opportunities to share additional information;
  • Parties should agree to establish an FCTC implementation review mechanism, and agree on its key principles;
  • COP5 should establish an intersessional Expert Group to prepare a report for COP6 outlining possible systems for implementation review of the FCTC, and make recommendations on the most appropriate format;
  • COP5 should prioritize activities of the Convention Secretariat to support Parties in fulfilling their reporting obligations and allocate sufficient and predictable resources for these activities.
