Information collection through surveys

The eleventh meeting of the Conference of the parties to the Basel Convention invited developing country parties and parties with economies in transition to provide information to the Secretariat on their needs for technical assistance and technology transfer, and their difficulties in implementing the Convention. It also invited developed country parties and others to provide information to the Secretariat on the technical assistance and technology that they have available to be transferred to developing country parties and parties with economies in transition (BC-11/11).

The Secretariat developed two online questionnaires to facilitate the collection of the above-mentioned information.

The questionnaire targeted to the developing country parties and parties with economies in transition was sent to the respective focal points to the Basel Convention in May 2014. The deadline for submitting the completed questionnaire is 19 September 2014.

The questionnaire can be accessed here. Please note that an e-mail with the login and password information was sent to the focal points.

The questionnaire targeted to the developed country parties is currently being finalized. Taking into account the information collected, the Secretariat will prepare a report on the progress made in providing technical assistance and capacity-building as well as facilitating the transfer of environmentally sound technologies to Parties. This report will be submitted to the twelfth meeting of the Conference of the Parties in 2015.
