The Toolkit review and updating process is driven by Parties. All experts nominated by Parties and others, included in the Toolkit Expert Roster (Toolkit experts), are involved in the Toolkit review and updating process at least by electronic means.
The process is organized and facilitated by the Secretariat in cooperation with UNEP Chemicals.
Expert panels focusing on a specific source category or task are established within the Toolkit Expert Roster, lead by volunteering Parties. Participation in the Toolkit experts meetings is balanced and open to observers.
The Toolkit Expert Roster is open for inclusion of further experts. Parties and others are encouraged to indicate name(s) and provide curricula vitae of experts who could be consulted as requested in the Toolkit review and update process.
Interested experts are encouraged to participate actively in the Toolkit review and update process and provide their input to the expert panels and task teams via the Secretariat.
