The 15th Asia-Pacific Seminar on Climate Change and the Asia-Pacific Regional Workshop on Article 6 of the Convention
11-15 September 2005
Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan

The Fifteenth Asia-Pacific Seminar on Climate Change and the Asia and the Pacific Regional Workshop on Article 6 of the Climate Change Convention will be held jointly from 11 to 15 September 2005 at Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan.

The Asia and the Pacific Regional Workshop on Article 6 of the Convention, is being organized in response to a request by the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) at its eighteenth and subsequent sessions. At its twenty-first session, the SBI welcomed the offer of the Government of Japan to host the regional workshop back-to-back with the Asia-Pacific Seminar on Climate Change.  The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is also supporting this event.  The workshop will contribute to the further development and implementation of (PDF) the New Delhi work programme on Article 6, which was adopted by the Conference of the Parties (COP) at its eighth session in November 2002, and further endorsed by the COP at its tenth session in December 2004.  This workshop will also look at the specific concerns relating to the implementation of Article 6 of the Convention by the Small Islands Developing States of the region.

The Asia-Pacific Seminar on Climate Change has been annually organized since 1991 by the Ministry of the Environment, Japan, and more recently in cooperation with the Australian Greenhouse Office (AGO), Kanagawa Prefecture, and Yokohama City.  The Seminar has served as a regional vehicle for the enhancement of policy dialogues and the promotion of international cooperation to address climate change.  The objective of the Seminar is to exchange information, experience and views on climate change among countries in Asia and the Pacific, and to facilitate further activities to address climate change in the region.
