The SBSTA decided to continue discussing the range of topics considered at the first workshop (held in Rome, Italy from 30 August to 1 September, 2006),
including the submissions by Parties, at the second workshop, that will focus on: the discussions of
ongoing and potential policy approaches and positive incentives, and technical and methodological
requirements related to their implementation; assessment of results and their reliability; and improving the
understanding of reducing emissions from deforestation in developing countries (paragraphs 88, FCCC/SBSTA/2006/11).
To facilitate discussions at the workshop, the SBSTA invited Parties and accredited observers to submit to
the secretariat, by 23 February 2007, their views on the topics referred to above. In their
submissions, Parties were invited to consider, as appropriate, relevant provisions of other conventions and
also the work of multilateral organizations. The SBSTA requested the secretariat to make available this
information for discussion at the workshop (paragraphs 89-90, FCCC/SBSTA/2006/11).
The SBSTA invited Non-Annex I Parties that are in a position to do so, and on a voluntary basis, to submit to
the secretariat, by 23 February 2007, any updated information and data additional to that provided in their
latest national communications and synthesized in the background
paper prepared for the first workshop, on emissions and trends in deforestation, data needs, and policies
and programmes in place or being considered to address deforestation and its root causes. The SBSTA
requested the secretariat to compile and make available the information at the second workshop, and to
provide a short presentation at the workshop (paragraph 91, FCCC/SBSTA/2006/11).
Submissions from Parties have been compiled into a miscellaneous document FCCC/SBSTA/2007/MISC.2
