The 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
In addition, nominated experts to the UNFCCC roster of
experts will contribute to the technical assessment 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.
To be able to implement activities mandated by the COP and/or the
CMP and the subsidiary bodies, the secretariat continuously invites Parties to the Convention:
· To nominate new experts to the UNFCCCC Roster of Experts,
· To regularly check, and, where necessary, update the information on
already nominated to the Roster of Experts,
· To remove experts from the Roster of Experts who are no longer available
cooperation with the secretariat.
These updates can be performed by National Focal Points and
roster custodians designated by their respective National Focal Points. For new nominations, the
following three steps should be followed:
1. The expert provides the National Focal Point or the Roster
custodian with his/her relevant information (see nomination form on the right).
2. The National Focal Point or the roster custodian enters the
information online into the UNFCCC Roster database.
Note: The online
functionality indicated below to "Nominate an
expert/Update the information" is currently not able to accept new
and additional information, as is currently in the process of being upgraded to address the needs of
nominations of experts for the analysis of BURs under the ICA process and the assessment of forest reference
levels. As an interim solution, the new nominations and additional information for these processes should be
sent to the secretariat using the email:Roster@unfccc.int.
However, nominations and updating information of experts for the review of GHG inventories continues to be
possible using the online functionality below.
3. The National Focal Point or the Roster custodian sends the
expert’s Curriculum Vitae by e mail to mailto:Roster@unfccc.int
