  2. To note, however, that the following Parties have still not reported their 2005 data: Cote d’Ivoire, Malta, Saudi Arabia, Solomon Islands, Somalia, Uzbekistan, Venezuela (Bolivarian Republic of);
  3. To note that their failure to report their 2005 data in accordance with Article 7 places the Parties listed in paragraph 2 in non‑compliance with their data‑reporting obligations under the Protocol until such time as the Secretariat receives their outstanding data;
  4. To note also that lack of timely data reporting by Parties impedes effective monitoring and assessment of Parties’ compliance with their obligations under the Protocol;

  6. To urge the Parties listed in the present decision, as appropriate, to work closely with the implementing agencies of the Multilateral Fund to report the required data to the Secretariat as a matter of urgency;
