Views on potential future areas of work of the Nairobi work programme on impacts, vulnerability and adaptation to climate change. Submissions from Parties and relevant organizations.
The Conference of the Parties (COP), at its sixteenth session, requested the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) to reconsider, at its thirty-eighth session, the work areas of the Nairobi work programme on impacts, vulnerability and adaptation to climate change with a view to making recommendations to the COP at its nineteenth session on how to best support the objectives of the Nairobi work programme; this process would further inform the organization of potential future areas of work that could also support the scientific and technical work under the Cancun Adaptation Framework, as appropriate. The COP, at its sixteenth session, also requested Parties and relevant organizations to submit to the secretariat, by 17 September 2012, their views on potential future areas of work of the Nairobi work programme. The COP further requested the secretariat to compile those submissions into a miscellaneous document for consideration by the SBSTA at its thirty-eighth session in order to inform the process mentioned in paragraph 1 above. The secretariat has received 38 such submissions. In accordance with the procedure for miscellaneous documents, the 11 submissions from Parties, the four submissions from United Nations organizations and the one submission from an intergovernmental organization are attached and reproduced in the languages in which they were received and without formal editing. In line with established practice, the 22 submissions from non-governmental organizations have been posted on the UNFCCC website
