Regional Capacity Building Workshops on NAMAs
The COP at its 18th session in Doha requested the secretariat, in collaboration with intergovernmental organizations as well as relevant bodies under the Convention, to organize regional technical workshops to build capacity in the preparation, submission and implementation of NAMAs as well as formulation of low emission development strategies.

To respond to request by Parties, the secretariat has been organizing regional workshops.
