The structured expert dialogue - The 2013-2015 review

In 2012, the COP decided to establish a structured expert dialogue that aims to support the work of a Joint Contact Group of SBSTA and SBI and to ensure the scientific integrity of the review through a focused exchange of views, information and ideas.

Ensuring the scientific integrity of the review, the structured expert dialogue is an appropriate vehicle for open and substantive discussions between Parties on the scientific knowledge and evidence based climate policy formulation. It will consider scientific information relevant to the review through regular scientific workshops and expert meetings and will assist the preparation and consideration of synthesis reports on the review.

The third meeting of the structured expert dialogue on the 2013-2015 review (SED3)

Date: 6-8 June 2014
Venue: Saal Schumann, Maritim Hotel, Bonn, Germany
