Intervention on Conference Room Paper: Concrete actions to address PCB decision points related to civil society
Delivered by Rani Ravudi, Asia and the Pacific NGO Delegate
The Delegation thanks the Secretariat for the Conference paper and appreciates its work in undertaking the initial monitoring of the implementation of the Decision Points (DPs) pertaining to civil society. While being cognizant of the scope and limitations of the assessment, we would like to register that there is a need to provide as much information that is available, in order to have a fair and clear picture of the results and impact of the DPs.
The report gives an overview of all that is being done related to the topics raised in the DPs, but it does not clearly show if the DPs themselves were specifically acted on, whether they addressed the issues they referred to, and what the outcomes were.As mentioned in the Scope of the Review, there are actions taken by either a Cosponsor or the Secretariat were not necessarily undertaken to address one specific DP related to civil society. This begs the question of attribution versus contribution in many cases.

What was a contentious and controversial issue even before the 35th PCB started, the report put forth by the NGO Delegation in December 2014 definitely rocked the house and generated much discussion from all angles and sides.
