Geneva, 10 August 2001
Implementation of Resolutions
1. Decision 11.136 records that the Conference of the Parties decided, at its 11th meeting, that:
The Secretariat shall analyse all information that it receives from the Parties regarding problems in the implementation of existing Resolutions and shall prepare a document for the first meeting of the Standing Committee in 2001, outlining its findings and proposing solutions where appropriate.
2. This Decision was adopted following the distribution of Notification to the Parties No. 1999/87 in which the Secretariat sought information from the Parties about Resolutions that were not implemented at the national level or that were difficult to implement.
3. At the 45th meeting of the Standing Committee (Paris, June 2001), the Secretariat reported that it had received too few responses to the request in Notification to the Parties No. 1999/87 to allow for a meaningful analysis. Consequently, the Secretariat proposed to conduct its own review of the Resolutions and to use its conclusions, together with comments that have been received from the Parties, as the basis for proposing amendments to the Resolutions.
4. The Standing Committee agreed that the Secretariat should again request from the Parties comments on problems in implementing Resolutions, should analyse the results, and prepare a plan for a phased review of Resolutions for presentation at the 46th meeting of the Committee.
5. Consequently, the Secretariat hereby invites all Parties to provide information on the Resolutions that are difficult to implement at the national level or that are not implemented, with an indication of the problems encountered or the reasons for non-implementation.
6. The Secretariat would be pleased to receive this information by 1 October 2001, to allow time for preparation of a comprehensive document for consideration at the 46th meeting of the Standing Committee.
