Third reporting exercise under the Protocol on Water and Health

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

According to article 6 of the Protocol, Parties shall set targets and target dates within two years of becoming a Party. Article 7 requires Parties to collect and evaluate data on their progress vis-à-vis achievement of the targets and on indicators designed to show how that progress has contributed towards preventing, controlling or reducing water-related disease. The objectives of the triennial summary reports are:

(a) To assess progress (self-assessment by Party and assessment by the Meeting of the Parties);

(b) To exchange experience and share lessons learned;

(c) To demonstrate the main challenges/obstacles in implementing the Protocol, thereby informing activities under the Protocol’s programme of work.

The commencement of the third reporting cycle under the Protocol was announced during the eighth meeting of the Working Group on Water and Health (Geneva, 21-22 October 2015). In accordance with the established procedures, the deadline for submission of the reports was set as 18 April 2016.  In addition to Parties to the Protocol, Signatories and other States were also invited to participate in the exercise.

The summary reports were to be completed using the template for summary reports in accordance with article 7, recommended for use by the Working Group on Water and Health at its eighth meeting (Geneva, 21–22 October 2015), available below.

Countries were encouraged to build on the lessons learned from the first and second reporting exercises that were conducted in 2009–2010 and in 2012–2013 respectively. The report of the Compliance Committee as well as the Regional report on the status of implementation of the Protocol that were submitted to the third session of the Meeting of the Parties identify a number of such common lessons and shortcomings that should taken into account in the current reporting cycle.

The summary reports submitted by all Parties to the Protocol and six other States are presented below, as received by the secretariat and in compliance with the obligations of the Protocol (art. 7, para. 5, and art. 17, para. 1 (b)). The Regional report on the status of implementation of the Protocol and the Report of the Compliance Committee to the fourth session of the Meeting of the Parties are also available below.  The designations employed and the presentation of the material in the summary reports do not imply the expression of any opinion whatsoever on the part of the Secretariat of the United Nations concerning the legal status of any country, territory, city or area, or of its authorities, or concerning the delimitation of its frontiers and boundaries.
