Workshop on facilitating the development and long-term sustainability of processes, and the establishment and maintenance of national technical teams, for the preparation of national communications, including GHG inventories
Bonn, Germany
20–21 June 2011

 

Workshop Objectives:

Overall Objective:
The workshop was aimed at providing technical advice to non-Annex I Parties to facilitate the development and long-term sustainability of processes, and the establishment and maintenance of national technical teams, for the preparation of their national communications, including GHG inventories, on a continuous basis, as mandated in the work programme of the CGE for 2010-2012.

Means to achieve the Objective:

  • The workshop participants were informed of the results of the survey entitled “Collection of information on problems related to the sustainability of the national communication process and maintenance of national technical teams for the preparation of national communications including GHG inventories, on a continuous basis” and the CGE recommendations on the outcome of the survey;
    • Parties exchanged views on common challenges and explored options and best practices based on the results of the survey on possible means to facilitate the development and long-term sustainability of processes, and the establishment and maintenance of national technical teams, and institutional arrangements for the preparation of national communications, including GHG inventories, on a continuous basis; 
  • The workshop also built on the experience of the technical and financial assistance provided by multilateral and bilateral agencies to non-Annex I Parties during the preparation of their national communications, including sharing of ideas on how these agencies can further assist Parties in the development and maintenance of national technical teams on a more sustainable basis.
