    CCAMLR has recognised the importance of Member capacity building to enhance their engagement in the work of CCAMLR. This proposal seeks to support the establishment of the General Capacity Building Fund (‘the Fund’) considered by the Intersessional Correspondence Group on Sustainable Financing and proposes a mechanism, including the establishment of a General Capacity Building Fund Panel, to support implementation of the Fund consistent with its objectives. The proposed mechanism draws on Annex 10-05/B ‘The use of the CDS fund’.  Consistent with the proposed mechanism, this paper further proposes that the Commission continue to include capacity building on its agenda to facilitate the implementation of capacity building by CCAMLR.  Finally, this paper proposes that the Commission establish a General Capacity Building Fund intersessional contact group to assist with the implementation of the Fund.
