The SBSTA also agreed to continue, at the same session, its consideration of modalities and procedures for possible additional LULUCF activities under the clean development mechanism (CDM), and modalities and procedures for alternative approaches to addressing the risk of non-permanence under the CDM, with a view to forwarding draft decisions on these matters to the CMP for consideration and adoption at its ninth session. The SBSTA further recalled its invitations3 to Parties and admitted observer organizations to submit to the secretariat their views on issues related to LULUCF and encouraged them to continue submitting such views until 25 March 2013. It requested the secretariat to compile the submissions from Parties into a miscellaneous document for consideration by the SBSTA at its thirty-eighth session.The secretariat has received eight such submissions from Parties. In accordance with the procedure for miscellaneous documents, these submissions are attached and reproduced in the languages in which they were received and without formal editing.
