Abstract
The Conference of the Parties (COP), by its decisions 11/CP.7, paragraph 2 (e) and 17/CP.7, paragraph 10 (b), (contained in documents FCCC/CP/2001/13/Add.1 and Add.2, respectively), requested the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) to develop definitions and modalities for including afforestation and reforestation project activities under the clean development mechanism (CDM) in the first commitment period, taking into account the issues of non-permanence, additionality, leakage, uncertainties and socio-economic and environmental impacts, including impacts on biodiversity and natural ecosystems, and being guided by the principles in the preamble to draft decision -/CMP.1 (Land use, land-use change and forestry) attached to decision 11/CP.7, with the aim of adopting a decision on these definitions and modalities at the ninth session of the COP, to be forwarded to the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol at its first session. The COP, by its decision 17/CP.7, paragraph 11, further decided that this decision shall be in the form of an annex on modalities and procedures for afforestation and reforestation project activities for the CDM reflecting, mutatis mutandis, the annex to decision 17/CP.7 on modalities and procedures for the CDM. The SBSTA, at its sixteenth session, agreed on terms of reference (FCCC/SBSTA/2002/6, annex I) and an agenda for the work mentioned before. It invited Parties to submit, by 15 March 2003, draft text for modalities for the annex referred previously. The secretariat has received 19 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
