Abstract
The Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA), at its twenty-third session, agreed to revise the “UNFCCC reporting guidelines on global climate change observing systems” in order to reflect the priorities of the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) implementation plan and incorporate the reporting on essential climate variables (FCCC/CP/1999/7, chapter III). Parties also noted the need to revise the more comprehensive supplementary reporting format (FCCC/SBSTA/2005/10, para. 97). The SBSTA agreed to consider this issue at its twentyfifth session. It invited the GCOS secretariat to submit to the SBSTA, by September 2006, a proposal on ways and means to address these needs. This document contains these proposals from the GCOS secretariat. In accordance with the procedure for miscellaneous documents, this submission is reproduced in the language in which it was received and without formal editing
