UNFCCC Roster of Experts contains information on experts, who are nominated by their respective
Governments through the National Focal Points of the Parties under the UNFCCC, to contribute to a
number of processes mandated by the COP, the CMP and the subsidiary bodies. These processes, among
others, include the reviews of annual submissions of greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories and supplementary
information under the Kyoto Protocol submitted by Annex I Parties, reviews of national communications
and biennial reports submitted by Annex I Parties and technical analysis under the international
consultation and analysis (ICA) process of biennial update reports (BURs) submitted by non-Annex I

sessions, once a year, of proposed forest reference emission levels and/or forest reference levels for
the implementation of the activities referred to in decision 1/CP.16, paragraph 70 (REDD-plus),
submitted on a voluntary basis by developing country Parties. The assessment team of experts will
compose of land use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF) experts.
