Durban Forum on Capacity-building - 7th Meeting


The 7th meeting of the Durban Forum on capacity-building will take place during the forthcoming session of the Subsidiary Bodies held in Bonn, Germany from 30 April to 10 May 2018. Information on the precise date of the 7th meeting will be made available in due time.


The organization of the 7th meeting is taking into consideration the recent COP decision on the annual technical progress report of the Paris Committee on Capacity-building for 2017, requesting the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) to thematically align the next Durban Forum with the 2017–2018 focus area or theme of the Paris Committee on Capacity-building, namely, ‘capacity-building activities for the implementation of nationally determined contributions in the context of the Paris Agreement’.


In line with the above, the SBI invited Parties and observers to submit, by 16 February 2018, their views on potential topics for the 7th meeting of the Durban Forum on capacity-building, to be aligned with the 2017–2018 focus area or theme of the Paris Committee on Capacity-building.

The agenda for the Forum will be drafted taking into consideration the submissions received, and will be made available on this web page towards the end of February – beginning of March 2018.
