The Conference of Parties
The Conference of Parties has overall responsibility for the implementation of the Convention. It is held every two years at UNESCO headquarters in Paris.

Among the objectives of the Conference of Parties is the monitoring of compliance with the Convention. Governments are required to provide a report which outlines all the measures they have taken to comply with the provisions of the Convention (including the development of anti-doping programmes).

The Conference of Parties provides the opportunity to determine how resources of the Fund for the Elimination of Doping in Sport will be used. It is also responsible for the examination and adoption of any amendments to the Convention.

The relationship with WADA can be reviewed at the Conference alongside the mechanisms for funding its annual core budget.

In addition to States Parties and other Member States of UNESCO, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is invited as an advisory organization to the Conference. The International Olympic Committee (IOC), the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), the Council of Europe (COE), the Intergovernmental Committee for Physical Education and Sport (CIGEPS) and other intergovernmental sports organizations are invited as observers.
