Cartagena Protocol - Online forum on capacity building

The Convention on Biological Diversity's Biosafety Clearing-House (BCH) conducted an online forum on "Strategic approaches to capacity-building for biosafety and the comprehensive review of the capacity-building action plan" from 20 February to 4 May 2012. Its purpose was to facilitate discussions on strategic approaches to capacity-building for biosafety, as well as measures for improving the planning (including needs assessments), implementation, coordination and monitoring of biosafety capacity-building initiatives. The outcomes of the Forum will contribute to the comprehensive review of the capacity-building action plan to be considered by the sixth meeting of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety (COP-MOP 6).
