6th Asian Co-benefits Partnership (ACP) 6th Advisory Group Meeting

The Asian Co-benefits Partnership (ACP) Advisory Group is convened once annually. The Advisory Group meeting has several important objectives as a primal discussion opportunity to guide the ACP; to set and review strategic priorities for the ACP, review the ACP work plan prepared by the Secretariat, recommend the working method, and to provide advice to the Secretariat on the ACP and its activities.

On 29 July 2015, the Sixth Advisory Group meeting was held at Pacifico Yokohama, Japan. About twenty members from government agencies, international organisations and research institutions joined this meeting and discussed; Work Plan 2014-2015, extended contribution and collaboration; modalities and the 2nd ACP White Paper.

The ACP Advisory Group then agreed to 1) complete the Work Plan 2014-2015 and proceed the proposed actions in it; 2) keep close communication on forming concrete linkages among the ACP, CCAC and other relevant initiatives; 3) initiate a process of drafting the 2nd ACP White Paper, and complete it by March 2016; and 4) maintain and further strengthen collaboration among the ACP Advisory Group as well as general member organisations.
