According to the Decision of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (Cancun, Mexico, 2016), the Parties to the Convention started the preparation of the Sixth National Report on Biodiversity Conservation.

In the context of the decision, with support of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in Tajikistan, launched a project on  providing technical assistance to eligible countries for the preparation of the Sixth National Report.

The project aim is to support Parties in developing high-quality reports that objectively reflect trends in the conservation of the country's biodiversity in the framework of national priorities and global targets. At the initial stage of the project, UNDP, in cooperation with partners and interested organizations, compiled the structure (table of contents) of the National Report and defined procedures for its formation.

In order to discuss the report structure and content, to amend and define the mechanism for project implementation, the Inception Workshop of the UNDP / GEF Project "Technical Assistance to eligible countries for the preparation of the Sxth National Report of the CBD" was held on August 16, 2018. Representatives of interested organizations, partners from ministries, departments, non-governmental organizations and scientific institutions took part in the workshop.

At the meeting discussed the report structure, the project implementation plan, procedures for collecting and processing information from various sources and other issues. Participants expressed their interest in cooperation, presenting their vision and describing potential areas for joint work.

The Sixth National Report should contain a final review of the implementation of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and implementation of the Aichi targets, including relevant national targets. The information gathered in the sixth National Report will be the main one for the development of the follow-up to the Strategic Plan beyond this decade and will help shape the Global Biodiversity Agenda beyond 2020.

As a result of the meeting, the report structure will be supplemented, amended and corrected, an inception report will be drawn up, which will be approved by the protocol within ten days.
