In accordance with its mandate, the Working Party is expected to provide guidance on Work Area 4: Capacity-building. This document provides information about activities in this Work Area since the Working Party’s last scheduled session in March 2020, as well as plans for 2021, drawing the Working Party’s attention to any specific issues where guidance is needed. The 2020 meeting of the Working Party was postponed for one year, as a result of the COVID-19 restrictions on meetings in place at that time.
