At its eleventh meeting held in Geneva from 28 April to 10 May 2013, the Conference of the Parties to the Basel Convention agreed on the decisions contained in annex I to the report of the meeting, document UNEP/CHW.11/24. Many of the decisions included invitations to parties and others to provide information.
The Executive Secretary sent a first letter on 4 June 2013 to parties and observers to transmit information requests contained in decisions that had early deadlines. A second letter was sent on 6 September 2013 which complements the first letter compiling all remaining information requests contained in decisions adopted by COP 11. The information requests are organized by decisions.
Information in response to the request(s) in each decision can be transmitted separately, since the deadlines vary.
