Abstract
The Conference of the Parties at its fifth session, pursuant to decision 8/CP.5, decided to establish the Consultative Group of Experts on National Communications from Parties not included in Annex I to the Convention (CGE), with the objective of improving national communications from Parties not included in Annex I to the Convention (non-Annex I Parties), in accordance with the annex to this decision (FCCC/CP/1999/6/Add.1). This Report of the Consultative Group of Experts to the subsidiary bodies contains three parts. Part one contains: mandate, organization of work, scope of report and possible action by the subsidiary bodies. Part two focuses on the analyses provided by the regional and interregional workshops, the CGE task groups and the CGE members on various elements of each national communication. These elements are outlined as follows: national circumstances; national GHG inventories; vulnerability and adaptation assessment; research and systematic observation; GHG abatement analysis; education, training and public awareness; information and networking; and financial and technical support programmes. Part three of this report contains recommendations, based on the issues analysed in part two by the CGE relating to financial and technical support, improvement of the IPCC methodologies and other models, and improvement of the UNFCCC guidelines
