UNFCCC Workshop on the status of modelling activities to assess the adverse effects of climate change and impacts of response measures


Bonn, Germany
16 - 18 May 2002

Background

The workshop, held in Bonn, Germany, 16-18 May 2002, dealt with the status of modelling activities to assess the adverse effects of climate change and the impact of response measures already implemented on individual developing country Parties, including on how to enhance the participation of developing country experts in such efforts. Participants also assessed approaches to minimize the adverse effects of response measures on developing country Parties.
