The Secretariat is pleased to inform you that upon a kind invitation of the Polish Presidency of the Carpathian Convention, the 14th meeting of the Carpathian Convention Implementation Committee (CCIC) will take place on 14 – 16 June 2023 in Mszana Dolna, Poland.


In this respect, please find attached a draft agenda of the meeting, together with a logistic note (including info about the accommodation).

The Carpathian Convention Implementation Committee acts as a monitoring body, as well as the one in charge of preparing political decisions for the Conference of the Parties. Therefore, in the light of the upcoming the 7th Meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Carpathian Convention (CC COP7), scheduled on 11-13 October 2023 in Belgrade, Serbia, the 14th meeting of the CCIC will be of a crucial importance. We trust that all Focal Points and relevant stakeholders will gather in Poland for planned discussions, which would mainly focus on:


  • Reporting on the implementation of the Programme of Work 2021-2023 and inputs from the stakeholders  
  • Reading of a draft COP7 Decisions and related documents
  • Discussing CC COP7 arrangements


Draft COP7 decisions will be shared for the first round of consultation in advance of the meeting.


In addition, we would like to invite you for a special session From the Carpathians to the Andes – exchange on regional approaches to sustainable mountain development, which is planned as an integral element of the CCIC meeting on 14 June in the late afternoon and will be attended by the delegation from the Andean Mountains.  This session was kindly requested as a part of a broader programme on interregional mountain governance exchange, where the Carpathians and the Carpathian Convention are presented as one of the model region. More information about this interesting session will be shared in the next notification.


Should you have any questions or require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact our office!


We are looking forward to meeting you in Poland and let us thank Poland, and particularly the Ministry of Climate and Environment, for the fantastic organization of the meeting!
