The Executive Committee is taking the following process for developing the compendium:

Guidance by the Executive Committee to the UNFCCC secretariat for developing the paper-based compendium:

  • Intended audience: Broad (e.g. practitioners, policy-makers, academics, knowledge brokers, etc.) at all levels
  • Content: Short overview and collection of examples (not attempting to draw a comprehensive landscape) at all levels (sub-national, national, regional and international) with geographic representation at global scale
  • Linkages with other activities:
 Action Area 2 of the initial two-year workplan of the Executive Committee
