Abstract
The Conference of the Parties (COP), at its eighteenth session, recognized the need to improve the coordination of support for the implementation of the activities referred to in decision 1/CP.16, paragraph 70, and to provide adequate and predictable support, including financial resources and technical and technological support, to developing country Parties for implementation of those activities. It requested the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) and the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI), at their thirty-eighth sessions, to jointly initiate a process with the aim of addressing the matters referred to in paragraph 1 above, and to consider existing institutional arrangements or potential governance alternatives including a body, a board or a committee, and to make recommendations on these matters to the COP at its nineteenth session.The COP invited Parties and admitted observer organizations to submit to the secretariat, by 25 March 2013, their views on the matters referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2 above, including potential functions, and modalities and procedures. It requested the secretariat to compile the submissions from Parties into a miscellaneous document for consideration by the SBSTA and the SBI at their thirty-eighth sessions. The secretariat has received 11 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. In line with established practice, the three submissions from non-governmental organizations have been posted on the UNFCCC website
