The purpose of the convention was to review the implementation mechanisms used to assist states parties & civil societies in their respective implementations. It provides the states parties & civil societies with information on measures taken by states parties in implementing and the difficulties encountered by them in doing so. It also helps states parties to identify and substantiate specific needs for technical assistance, to promote and facilitate the provision of such assistance.
