Hotel Tivoli Tejo,
Parque das Nações
Lisbon
Portugal
7 - 9 April 2003

The Conference of the Parties (COP), at its seventh session, in its decision 21/CP.7, requested the secretariat to organize one or possibly more workshops on methodologies for adjustments under Article 5, paragraph 2 of the Kyoto Protocol with the participation of greenhouse gas inventory experts, experts nominated to the UNFCCC roster of experts and experts involved in the preparation of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report entitled "Good Practice Guidance and Uncertainty Management in National Greenhouse Gas Inventories".

This workshop follows a first workshop on the same matter which took place in Athens, Greece, 3-5 April 2002. During that first workshop a proposal of a draft technical guidance on methodologies for adjustments was elaborated (FCCC/SBSTA/2002/INF.5) and forwarded to the SBSTA at its sixteenth session.

The main purpose of this second workshop, as mandated by the SBSTA at its seventeenth session, is to assess the case studies undertaken by the secretariat for simulating the calculation of adjustments under Article 5, paragraph 2, of the Kyoto Protocol. These case studies should be prepared following the draft technical guidance mentioned above, as described in document FCCC/SBSTA/2002/INF.19. The SBSTA, at its seventeenth session, invited Parties to submit their views on the draft technical guidance by 15 March 2003, taking into account the results of the case studies. The results of the workshop will be considered by the SBSTA at its eighteenth session, with the aim of completing the technical guidance on methodologies for adjustments under Article 5, paragraph 2, of the Kyoto Protocol.
