National Implementation Plans

Each Party is required to develop a plan for the implementation of its obligations under the Convention, which needs to be transmitted to the Conference of the Parties within two years of the date on which this Convention enters into force for it (Article 7).

Article 7 also calls for a review and update of the plan on a periodic basis and in a manner to be specified by the Conference of the Parties.

All NIPs received by the Secretariat are then presented to the next Conference of the Parties. To transmit your NIP to the Secretariat please use this template properly filled and signed either by the Official Contact Point to the Secretariat (OCP) or by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or to consult on this matter, please contact us at: suman.sharma@brsmeas.org.

Below are all the NIPs transmitted by Parties, grouped according to the amendments to the Convention that they address:
