Agenda 3: Transparency, Initiative on Reporting

14th Meeting of States Parties to the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention

 

3 December 2015

 

 Mr. President,

The Delegation of Thailand would like to express our appreciation for your initiating and presenting this “Guide to Reporting” which we believe will help in harmonizing and simplifying the reporting obligations of the Convention.

We observe that the Guide has established clear structures for each reporting topic in the annual report of States Parties. Illustrative explanations regarding the data and information required as well as reporting examples are all useful and practical for States Parties to adapt to their national context when preparing their reports. The introduction of a unified reporting format like this one would greatly facilitate the work of reporting States and also relevant committees in the analysis and assessment of those reports.

Thailand therefore views this initiative as a significant progress in the improvement of the quality of the Convention’s transparency report. We are ready to adopt the Guide to Reporting and look forward to applying it in the preparation of our national report next year.

Thank you.
