Country Parties to the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), shall in 2014 embark on the preparation of the first leg of the fifth national reporting cycle. The preparation of these national reports is crucial to the review and assessment of the implementation process.
Experience from all previous reporting cycles has shown that many country Parties use the services of consultants in helping them to prepare these reports. As a way of helping these Parties in their search for suitably qualified expertise, the Capacity Building Marketplace is presently developing a database of suitable consultants. The basic information on these persons as regards their qualification and experience as well as their contact information shall be place on the Marketplace, thereby making the same available to all interested reporting entities.
It is important to note that national reports in this first leg of the fifth reporting cycle shall be done against the performance indicators as contained in Annex III of Decision 13/COP.9 . Additionally, all reports are done and submitted electronically.
Are you knowledgeable as regards reporting under the UNCCD? Would you like to offer your services as a consultant or expert to a reporting entity or entities? If so, then we encourage you to fill out the form on the Marketplace without delay.
We shall then include you in the database on the Marketplace. We look forward to hearing from you.
