6. Proposed Timetable of Development
The indicator would need to fully be developed following the fifteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to
the Convention (COP15), once the submission deadline and the formats of the national reports under the Convention and
under the Nagoya Protocol are agreed by their Parties. The data release for this indicator would closely follow the
national reporting cycle under the Convention and the Nagoya Protocol.
The template for the interim national report under the Nagoya Protocol included a question and free text box to
indicate monetary benefits received since the entry into force of the Protocol. However, as the question was not
mandatory, it does not provide a sufficient baseline for this proposed indicator.
Reporting on headline indicators will be included as a mandatory component of the revised format of the national
report under the Nagoya Protocol and the template for the seventh and eighth national report under the Convention, to
be adopted respectively by MOP4 and COP15. Data sources related to the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources
for Food and Agriculture and the WHO PIP Framework would need to be clearly identified in collaboration with the
respective Secretariats of these instruments.
