The Conference of Parties is a statutory conference held every two years to oversee the implementation and monitoring of the International Convention against Doping in sport in line with its provisions.

Responsible for ensuring the overall implementation of the International Convention against Doping in Sport, enacted by the General Conference of UNESCO in October 2005, the Conference of the States Parties to this Convention is held every two years at UNESCO Headquarters, Paris.

This Conference feeds several objectives, including providing a platform for discussion and debate on public policy in the fight against doping, ensuring harmonization, coordination and effectiveness of the global legal and policy framework against this scourge.

In addition to the 172 countries that have ratified the Convention as of 1 January 2013, all Member States of UNESCO have been invited to participate in the fourth session.

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is also invited in an advisory capacity, with the presence of key partners which will participate as observers, including 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 various intergovernmental and international sports organizations.
