Informal Meeting of Experts on Methodological Issues Relating to Reducing Emissions from Forest Degradation in Developing Countries
20 – 21 October 2008 in Bonn, Germany


At the workshop on "Methodological Issues relating to Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation in Developing Countries" held in Tokyo, Japan from 25 to 27 June 2008 (see workshop report FCCC/SBSTA/2008/11), there was general agreement among the participants on the need for further consideration of methodological issues relating to estimating and monitoring emissions and changes in carbon stocks from forest degradation. Noting the need for further work on this matter, the Chair of the SBSTA proposed to have an informal meeting of experts to address this issue.  Following this proposal by the Chair of the SBSTA, the secretariat organized this informal meeting of experts on methodological issues relating to reducing emissions from forest degradation in developing countries.
