Financial and technical assistance and support are essential for developing counties in preparation of their national communications (NCs) and biennial update reports (BURs).

At the moment, some of the key actors involved, under the Convention, in enhancing the capacity of developing country Parties in the preparation of their reports include the secretariat, the Global Environment Fund (GEF), , Global Support Programme (UNEP/UNDP) the Consultative Group of Experts on National Communications from Parties not included in Annex I to the Convention (CGE), and Annex I Parties. In addition, there are numerous other actors including IGOs, NGOs, institutions and other agencies that make significant contributions.
 
Technical Assistance and Support
The main channel for the provision of technical assistance and support in relation to measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) for developing countries is the CGE. The CGE, at the request of the Convention, developed training materials for the preparation of NCs and BURs and also organizes workshops on the use of these materials and on the preparation of NCs and BURs.

The secretariat
One of the functions of the secretariat is to facilitate assistance to non-Annex I Parties in preparing their NCs and, more recently, their BURs. This includes facilitating the work of the CGE, organizing training workshops, developing appropriate tools and guidance materials, collaboration with bilateral and multilateral support programmes, the dissemination of information through participation in regional workshops and expert group meetings, promoting information exchange, and capacity-building.
