Abstract
The Conference of the Parties (COP), in its decision 1/CP.18, paragraph 35, requested the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice and the Subsidiary Body for Implementation to jointly initiate a process with the aim of addressing the need to improve the coordination of support for the implementation of activities relating to reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, conservation of forest carbon stocks, sustainable management of forests, and enhancement of forest carbon stocks, and to consider existing institutional arrangements or potential governance alternatives. The COP requested the secretariat to organize an in-session workshop on these matters at the thirty-eighth sessions of the subsidiary bodies. Parties gave presentations on issues relating to the need for improving the coordination of support and engaged in an in-depth consideration of several options, including the establishment of a new body, use of existing institutional arrangements, the role of the Green Climate Fund, and making use of the UNFCCC secretariat as an interim solution
