Peer Review Meeting

simpeer_nice_avril2017

The main objective of this meeting organized in Nice, France, on 27 April 2017, was to discuss the draft national reports and formulate key recommendations towards the final report of the SIMPEER pilot test.

Following the COP 19 Decisions related to the Mediterranean Strategy for Sustainable Development 2016-2025 (MSSD 2016-2025) and the Reform of the Mediterranean Commission on Sustainable Development (MCSD), the pilot test of the Simplified Peer Review Mechanism (SIMPEER) of National Strategies on Sustainable Development (NSSDs) has been launched by Plan Bleu in cooperation with three volunteer Contracting Parties, namely France, Montenegro, and Morocco.

Based on a voluntary principle and on equal participation, the SIMPEER seeks to establish within an agreed methodology the exchange of experiences, policies and good practices on implementing sustainable development at the national level. This peer review mechanism represents also an important incentive to enable review of sustainable development structures and processes at the national level, notably the NSSD, using the Mediterranean Strategy for Sustainable Development 2016-2015 (MSSD 2016-2025) as a strategic guiding document for all stakeholders and partners to translate the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at the regional, sub-regional and national levels.

Following a desktop analysis and country missions carried out by the project team (3 independent experts), the main objective of the Peer Review Meeting was to discuss the draft national reports and formulate key recommendations towards the final report of the SIMPEER pilot test. During this meeting, each Contracting Party was invited to present its own draft national report, while the Peers will be responsible for making recommendations.
