The ASEAN workshop on harmonization of reporting to biodiversity-related conventions took place in Hanoi, Vietnam, 15-17 April 2009, organised by the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity, supported by experts from UNEP-WCMC and other institutions. Its main aim was to build the reporting capacity of ASEAN countries and strengthen the collaboration between focal points at the national level. The meeting resulted in an action plan for harmonization of reporting to the biodiversity-related conventions in the ASEAN region.
In October 2000, UNEP convened its first harmonization workshop entitled 'Towards the Harmonization of National Reporting', which involved eight convention secretariats and eight countries in discussing options for harmonization, and resulted in the establishment of pilot projects in four countries (Ghana, Indonesia, Panama and the Seychelles). The completion of the four pilot projects called for the organisation of a second workshop, to discuss the results and plan a way forward based on this and other experience. The 2004 harmonization workshop in Haasrode was convened by UNEP-WCMC in cooperation with the governments of Belgium and the UK.
