Report on the thirteenth meeting of the Least Developed Countries Expert Group. Note by the secretariat.
The terms of reference of the Least Developed Countries Expert Group (LEG) stipulate that the LEG shall meet twice each year and that its function is to advise on the strategy for preparation and implementation of national adaptation programmes of action (NAPAs). In response to an offer by the Government of Yemen, the thirteenth meeting of the group was held in Sanaâa, Yemen, from 14 to 16 April 2008. As this was the first meeting of the group in its fourth term, the proceedings
focused on developing a comprehensive work programme for the period 2008â2010, as requested by decision 8/CP.13. The work programme contains objectives, activities and expected outcomes, and takes into account the results of a stocktaking meeting on NAPAs held in 2007 and the Nairobi work programme on impacts, vulnerability and adaptation to climate change. The meeting also resulted in the election of new officers. Upon an initiative by the focal point of Yemen, the LEG also devoted a session to interacting with Yemenâs NAPA team, which had recently prepared its draft NAPA. Both the LEG and the NAPA team benefited from questions and feedback during this interaction
