Informal discussion on a more effective dialogue between Parties and regional and international climate change research programmes and organizations in the context of decision 9/CP.11

8 May 2007,  Hotel Maritim, Bonn

Background and mandate

At its 24th session, the SBSTA noted the need for enhancing two-way communication and cooperation between Parties and regional and international climate change research programmes to meet the research needs of the Convention.  It agreed to explore how it might facilitate a more effective dialogue between Parties and those research programmes, in the context of decision 9/CP.11.  To further facilitate the development of the dialogue, it asked the secretariat to organize, at the 26th session of the SBSTA, a meeting for an informal discussion among Parties, and to invite representatives of regional and international climate change research programmes and the IPCC to participate.
