Information provided by States parties and signatories in advance of the meeting

The Working Group had recommended at its second intersessional meeting that in advance of each future meeting of the Working Group, States parties should be invited to share their experiences of implementing the provisions under consideration, preferably by using the self-assessment checklist and including, where possible, successes, challenges, technical assistance needs, and lessons learned in implementation (CAC/COSP/WG.4/2011/4, paragraph 12).

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime therefore sought the cooperation of all States parties and signatories to the Convention in providing pertinent information on their relevant initiatives and practices to the Secretariat in relation to the topics for discussion at the ninth intersessional Working Group meeting:

(a) Preventing and managing conflicts of interest (art. 7, para. 4);

(b) Asset and interest disclosure systems (art. 8, para. 5)

Below the Secretariat produces copies of all of the information provided by States parties and signatories in advance of this meeting.
