Thematic programmes


The COP has established programmes of work that respond to a number of Articles. Please identify the relative priority accorded to each theme and the adequacy of resources. This will allow subsequent information on implementation of each Article to be put into context. There are other questions on implementation of the programmes of work at the end of these guidelines.

Further comments on work programmes and priorities
(9 & 10) There are no 'dry and sub-humid lands' in Belgium as defined under the CBD. However, Belgium has some projects, mainly in Africa, in relation to this theme and programme of work. Inter alia the Ghent University is involved in some local projects. More information can be found under Article 5 - Co-operation.
