2016 was a year of interim stocktaking for the “Interlaken-Izmir-Brighton-Brussels” process which aims at ensuring the long-term effectiveness of the Convention system. This stocktaking is positive and demonstrates that many achievements have been made, proving the reality of the commitments made by the member States.
