The assessment of implementation is undertaken by the CRIC on the basis of information submitted by Parties and other stakeholders. The assessment of information on progress indicators (previously known as impact indicators) measuring the achievement of the Strategic Objectives of the Strategy is conducted every four years.
The next reporting leg where information on progress indicators is required will be initiated in 2016.
The secretariat, in preparation for this forthcoming reporting event, will ensure that the present manual will be updated in early 2016, taking into consideration further developments in reporting on progress indicators as advised by the Committee on Science and Technology (CST). Where appropriate and feasible, the secretariat will ensure that capacity-building activities on progress indicator reporting are included in activities under the GSP.
