Summary, abstract or table of contents
At its sixth meeting, the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety (COP-MOP), in its decision BS-V1/15, paragraph 3, requested the Executive Secretary to:

(a) Undertake a dedicated survey to gather information corresponding to indicators in the Strategic Plan that could not be obtained from the second national reports or through other existing mechanisms;

(b) Review the information gathered through the survey referred to in subparagraph (a) above and make the results available to the Parties before their seventh meeting.

The survey was intended to generate information necessary for addressing the gaps in the baseline referred to in Paragraph 3 of the same decision and to facilitate measuring progress in the implementation of the Protocol.

Accordingly, on 27 May 2013, the Executive Secretary launched the survey through the Biosafety Clearing-House (BCH)  and, in the following months, collected responses from both National Focal Points for the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety (CPB-NFPs) and Biosafety Clearing-House (BCH-NFPs).

In accordance with the COP-MOP decision above, the review of the information gathered from Parties through the survey is presented in the document attached to this record.

The complete set of data gathered through the dedicated survey is available on the Biosafety Clearing-House at https://bch.cbd.int/database/reports/surveyonindicators.shtml
