The Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA), at its twenty-sixth and subsequent sessions, invited relevant regional and international climate change research programmes and organizations to regularly inform it of developments in research activities relevant to the needs of the Convention. At its thirty-seventh session, the SBSTA welcomed the continuation of the research dialogue during SBSTA 36. It invited Parties and regional and international research programmes and organizations active in climate change research to provide information on the technical and scientific aspects of emissions by sources, removals by sinks and reservoirs of all greenhouse gases, including emissions and removals from terrestrial ecosystems such as steppe, savannah, tundra and peatlands, with a view to identifying and quantifying the impact of human activities. This information would be considered as a theme for the next research dialogue, during SBSTA 38. The secretariat has received two such submissions. In accordance with the procedure for miscellaneous documents, these submissions are attached and reproduced in the language in which they were received and without formal editing.
