  • Background on the Work Undertaken by the Ad Hoc Advisory Committee on the Funding Strategy, and its Further Development

    Document type: Meeting

    1. This document reviews the outcome of the deliberations of the Ad Hoc Advisory Committee on the Funding Strategy, during the previous biennium, which will now be taken up by this Working Group. 2. It considers The Strategic Plan for the Implementation of the Funding Strategy, 2009–2014, and why its target of USD 116 million was not met, in particular, the reasons behind the failure to achieve user-based income. 3. It analyses the various proposals for addressing these problems that are embodied in the innovative approaches that the Ad Hoc Committee identified. All approaches require changes to the current working of the Multilateral System, which the document identifies. The Working Group is invited to consider further possible innovative approaches, and to identify anything needed for their further development. 4. The Governing Body has requested that a range of different innovative approaches that could provide a part of an adequate and sustainable flow of income to the Benefit-sharing Fund be addressed by the Working Group. They can then be combined in a packet with other sources of income — particularly contributions from Governments — with the aim of creating a predictable and sustainable flow of adequate financial resources to the Benefit-sharing Fund. 5. The Governing Body decided that the Working Group will employ a phased approach: first, measures to increase income to the Benefit-sharing Fund, in particular user-based payments; and secondly, other measures to enhance the functioning of the Multilateral System, which include possible expansion of the System’s crop coverage. Careful planning of the work during the biennium will be crucial.


  • Innovative Approaches Already Identified by the Ad Hoc Advisory Committee on the Funding Strategy

    Document type: Meeting

    1. This document provides an overview of the “innovative approaches”, which were identified and considered by the Ad Hoc Advisory Committee on the Funding Strategy (the Committee) in the last biennium. It is an excerpt from the Report of the Second Resumed Session of the Seventh Meeting of the Ad Hoc Advisory Committee on the Funding Strategy, which was made available to the Governing Body in document IT/GB-5/13/Inf.4 Add.2. 2. In Resolution 3/2009, the Governing Body “invite[d] Contracting Parties to explore, including with relevant stakeholders, the development of innovative approaches to allow for the provision of resources to the Benefit-sharing Fund, including on a regular and predictable basis.” At its Fourth Session, the Governing Body in Resolution 3/2011 “emphasize[d] the need to further explore innovative approaches in engaging voluntary donors to the Benefit-sharing Fund, in particular various private sector prospects such as the seed and the food processing industry.” 3. The Committee has accordingly identified and considered a wide range of innovative approaches during the last biennium. Moreover, there have been extensive discussions on innovative approaches among Contracting Parties and stakeholders. The descriptions of the six innovative approaches contained in this document were prepared by the Committee at its second resumed meeting. 4. The document Background on the work undertaken by the Ad Hoc Advisory Committee on the Funding Strategy, and its further development, makes ample reference to the innovative approaches already identified by the Committee and contained in this document.
