Similarly to the SBSTTA, the Subsidiary Body on Implementation (SBI) is another permanent subsidiary body- second of two- and was formed at COP12 in 2014, out of the Ad-Hoc Open-Ended Working Group on the Review of the Implementation. The SBI works on providing advice on how the implementation of the CBD can be enhanced, with a focus on its protocols and the 2011-2020 strategic plan. Simply put, their focus is on how the goals of the CBD are being implemented, and how they can be better achieved. Since the SBI is a newer permanent subsidiary body, they have only had one meeting thus far, in May of 2016, and as such, COP13 will be the first time they officially provide advice.
