Matters related to the Kyoto Protocol: Matter related to decision 1/CP.3, paragraph 5: Land-use change and forestry. Report on the initial SBSTA workshop on land-use, land-use change and forestry related to the Kyoto Protocol. Note by the secretariat.
The Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA), at its eighth session, requested the secretariat to organize a workshop prior to the fourth session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 4) with participation by experts including those engaged in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) process, possibly coincident with an IPCC expert meeting (FCCC/SBSTA/1998/6, para. 45 (d)). The purpose of the workshop would be to consider data availability based on definitions used by Parties and international organizations, including their implications, in relation to Article 3.3 of the Kyoto Protocol and to consider any further inputs to the IPCC, including to special report on land-use, land-use change and forestry to be prepared by the IPCC. It also agreed to plan a second workshop after COP 4 to focus on issues arising from Article 3.4 and document FCCC/SBSTA/1998/INF.1, the comments submitted by Parties and issues arising from the first workshop. It requested the secretariat to report on the initial workshop at the ninth session of the SBSTA
