A number of decisions have mandated training programmes for experts to enable them to participate in
various activities related to assessment of the information submitted by Annex I Parties under the
Convention and the Kyoto Protocol and to measurement, reporting and verification (MRV), both for Annex
I Parties and non-Annex I Parties.
For Annex I Parties, these include, among others, the reviews of annual submissions of GHG inventories and
supplementary information under the Kyoto Protocol, and reviews of national communications and biennial
reports as part of the international assessment and review (IAR) process.
For non-Annex I Parties, this relates to the technical analysis as part of the international consultation and
analysis (ICA) process for biennial update reports (BURs) submitted by non-Annex I Parties.
