UNFCCC Workshop on the Development of the Five-Year Programme of Work on Impacts, Vulnerability and Adaptation to Climate Change


Mandate

The COP, by its decision 1/CP.10, requested the SBSTA to develop a structured five-year programme of work for the SBSTA on the scientific, technical and socio-economic aspects of impacts, vulnerability and adaptation to climate change in the context of the terms of reference of the SBSTA as referred to in Article 9 of the Convention. An in-session workshop was organized during the twenty-second session to facilitate the development of the five-year programme of work.

The SBSTA then considered a draft annex to a draft decision on the programme of work (FCCC/SBSTA/2005/4, page 21). It agreed to further consider and elaborate the draft annex and the draft decision at its twenty-third session with a view to recommending a draft decision for adoption by the COP at its eleventh session.

The SBSTA, at its twenty-second session, requested the secretariat, under the guidance of the Chair of the SBSTA, to organize an informal workshop, subject to the availability of resources, before the twenty-third session of the SBSTA to facilitate the development of the programme of work (FCCC/SBSTA/2005/4 para 15). This workshop will take place 17-19 October 2005 in Bonn, Germany.
