Capacity-building for biosafety post-2020

In decision CP-9/3, the COP-MOP acknowledged the need for a specific action plan for capacity-building for implementation of the Cartagena Protocol and the Supplementary Protocol on Liability and Redress that is aligned with the post-2020 Implementation Plan for the Protocol and complementary to the long-term strategic framework for capacity-building beyond 2020 (decision 14/24) and welcomed the indicative schedule of activities for the development of the specific action plan contained in the annex to the decision.

The COP-MOP also assigned a central role for the Liaison Group on the Cartagena Protocol in the development of the post-2020 capacity-building action plan and the long-term strategic framework.

Main steps in the development of an action plan for capacity building for the Cartagena Protocol and of biosafety elements in the long-term strategic framework for capacity building beyond 2020

  • Views and suggestions on the possible elements of the long-term strategic framework for capacity-building beyond 2020 as well as possible elements of a specific action plan for capacity-building on biosafety, covering the Cartagena Protocol and its Supplementary Protocol. See notification 2019-027 (28 February 2019) and the submissions received.

  • Face-to-face meeting of the Liaison Group (thirteenth meeting) to contribute to the development of the draft action plan for capacity-building for implementation of the Cartagena Protocol and its Supplementary Protocol as well as to the draft long-term strategic framework for capacity-building beyond 2020, as appropriate. The meeting was held from 22 to 25 October 2019. The report of the meeting is available here.

  • Peer review (December 2019-January 2020) of the draft action plan for capacity-building for implementation of the Cartagena Protocol and its Supplementary Protocol in conjunction with the peer review of the draft Implementation Plan for the Cartagena Protocol.

  • Further review of the draft action plan for capacity-building by the fourteenth meeting of the Liaison Group in April 2020, including input from the fourth national reports on the implementation of the Protocol as well as from the assessment and review of the Protocol and the final evaluation of the Strategic Plan, as applicable.

  • Consideration of output by Subsidiary Body on Implementation and subsequently by COP-MOP 10.
