The National Reporting process is a collective, collaborative and participatory exercise. This multi-agency, multi-sectoral and multi-stakeholder process should ideally involve all relevant governmental, scientific and academic institutions, non-governmental and other organizations and stakeholders at different levels who contribute to the implementation of the CMS Family instruments and/or can provide necessary data and information.
These institutions, organizations and stakeholders should form the core National Coordination Mechanisms for the implementation of the CMS instruments. These Mechanisms should be coordinated by the NFP.
