To strengthen implementation under the third reporting cycle (2019-2024), the Council decided that the President of NASCO would correspond with Parties / jurisdictions about their Implementation Plans (CNL(20)55). The following correspondence has taken place to date:
- Letter from President Requesting Revised IPs (16 October 2020).
- Response from Canada to Letter from President (3 November 2020).
- Response from the United States to Letter from President (16 November 2020).
- Letter from President following the November 2020 IP Review (21 December 2020).
Following the November 2020 review of IPs, for those Parties / jurisdictions with IPs, or sections of IPs, that are still considered by the Review Group to be unsatisfactory, the President of NASCO will write again to the relevant Minister, or other nominated official. The second letter will include the November review, and request a response to include how the Party / jurisdiction will demonstrate progress towards the attainment of NASCO’s Resolutions, Agreements and Guidelines in areas where deficiencies have been identified. The intention is to allow the response to be available prior to the IP Special Session webinar in spring 2021.
