CGE Hands-on Training Workshop on Vulnerability and Adaptation Assessments for the Latin America and the Caribbean Region, Asuncion, Paraguay 14-18 August 2006

The Consultative Group of Experts on national communications from Parties not included in Annex I to the Convention (CGE) is a constituted expert body of the Convention with the overall goal of improving the process of preparation of the second and subsequent national communications by providing technical advice and support to Parties not included in Annex I to the Convention (non-Annex I Parties). At its eight session, the Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP), mandated the CGE to provide technical advice and support, by organizing and conducting workshops, including hands-on training workshops at the regional or subregional level, on greenhouse gas inventories, vulnerability and adaptation, and mitigation for the preparation of second and subsequent national communications by non-Annex I Parties.

The COP, at the same session, also adopted the guidelines for the preparation of national communications from non-Annex I Parties (decision 17/CP.8). These guidelines are further elaborated through the publication, by the secretariat, of a user manual and the conduct of CGE regional hands-on training workshops.

This hands-on training workshop was aimed at assisting non-Annex I country experts in conducting vulnerability and adaptation (V&A) assessments when preparing their national communications by introducing them to a wide range of V&A assessment approaches, methods and tools and their relative strengths and weaknesses.
