At the thirteenth Conference of the Parties (COP 13), Parties adopted a new strategic framework for implementing the Convention (decision 7/COP.13). The UNCCD 2018-2030 Strategic Framework not only provides guidance to UNCCD Parties on how to implement the Convention, but also serves as a monitoring tool for the Committee for the Review of the Implementation of the Convention (CRIC) to assess implementation efforts undertaken by Parties. Following that decision, the PRAIS portal has been updated to facilitate the 2017-2018 UNCCD reporting. Parties can log on and access static PDF reporting templates, available on a temporary basis, and default data on the three biophysical indicators in addition to land Degradation Neutrality target setting programme (LDN-TSP) information for those countries who are committed to set their targets. While interactive reporting templates prepopulated with default data on the biophysical indicators are still being finalized, the static PDF reporting templates can assist countries in familiarizing with the new reporting requirements. Interactive reporting templates will be made available by the end of December. Report submission should therefore be done using the interactive PDF files.
