1 Oct - 9 Nov 2016 Non-Annex I Parties undergoing FSV may provide responses to the questions received, through the secretariat.

Other organizational matters

Time allocation: The workshop comprised  three-hour sessions from 10 to 11 November 2016.  Each Party was allocated 35 minutes on average, as follows:

a. Opening –1 minute each to introduce each Party;
b. Presentation –15 minutes per Party on average to present their BUR;
c. Question and answer –20 minutes per Party on average after each presentation.

In the event that the Party undergoing FSV received no or very few questions, the total time allocated to that Party would be shortened. Upon completion of the question and answer session for one Party, the next Party would be invited to begin its presentation.

The sessions was also webcasted and made publicly available on the secretariat's website here.

6. Output of the FSV: A record of the FSV, summarizing the presentation by the Party and corresponding interaction with other Parties, was prepared, under the guidance of the SBI Chair, for each Party undergoing the FSV. This, together with the summary report, constituted the final output of the ICA for each Party and was made available on the UNFCCC website:
