Many innovations have been introduced in the performance review and assessment of implementation system (PRAIS) by decisions taken at COP 10. Other differences in the 2012-2013 reporting are related to decisions taken previously by Parties but which are to be implemented only in 2012-2013.
At the request of country Parties, the overall duration of the reporting and review process will be extended as compared to the previous biennium. Parties and other reporting entities will have a period of six months (March-August 2012) to compile and submit reports through the PRAIS portal. Three additional months (September-November 2012) will be used to assess and eventually increase data quality, and fill possible information gaps.
The preliminary analysis documents
for CRIC 11 will be prepared by the secretariat and the Global Mechanism from December 2012 to mid-January 2013. The analyses will follow the guidelines agreed upon by Parties by decision 14/COP.10
