Lead reviewers meetings
Under the UNFCCC review guidelines (decision 13/CP.20), expert review teams (ERTs) for review of GHG inventories shall include two lead reviewers, one from a non-Annex I Party and one from an Annex I Party. These lead reviewers have a special role, ensuring that the reviews are performed by each ERT according to the relevant review guidelines and consistently across Parties. Lead reviewers should also ensure the quality, objectivity, continuity, comparability and timeliness of reviews.
The COP requested the secretariat to facilitate meetings of lead reviewers for GHG inventories to facilitate the work of lead reviewers in fulfilling their task to ensure consistency in the reviews across Parties. Lead reviewers shall also collectively prepare an annual report to the SBSTA, containing suggestions on how to improve the quality, efficiency and consistency of the reviews.
