UNITED NATIONS FRAMEWORK CONVENTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE
Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice
Geneva, 27 February - 4 March 1996
The Conference of the Parties, at its first session, by its decision 5/CP.1,
paragraph 2, decided that a framework for reporting on activities implemented jointly under the pilot phase should be developed by the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) in coordination with the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) (FCCC/CP/1995/Add.1). The Bureau of the Conference of the Parties, at a meeting on
19 June 1995, considered that the contribution of views by Parties
in writing would help to advance work on the establishment of such a
framework and contribute to substantive consideration of this subject
by the SBSTA and the SBI. The interim secretariat subsequently
received one submission from Norway and two from the Netherlands,
which were issued in document FCCC/SBSTA/1995/MISC.1 in time for the
first session of the SBSTA.
The SBSTA, at its first session, decided to extend the initial deadline for submissions from 8 September 1995 to 1 November 1995 (FCCC/SBSTA/1995/3, para. 31 (a)).
Since that session, the interim secretariat has received one submission from the
United States of America and one from Germany. These submissions
are attached and, in accordance with the procedure for miscellaneous
documents, are reproduced in the language in which they were received
and without formal editing.
