FCA Policy Briefing for COP7: Mobilising resources for FCTC implementation
FCA urges COP7 to agree on strategies that will lead to mobilisation of substantial additional resources for tobacco control at country level. COP7 should take the following four actions:
- Review existing implementation needs of Parties and determine key priorities to inform resource mobilisation;
- Agree on a mechanism to routinely review the implementation needs of Parties and address them over time;
- Mandate the Convention Secretariat, in coordination with other relevant stakeholders, to communicate Parties’ implementation needs to donors in a strategic and systematic way;
- Request a report to be presented to COP8 on progress in mobilising resources, both domestic and international, for tobacco control.
