Ambassador Aziz Mekouar, together with the Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, Chairs of the SBSTA, SBI and the Co-Chairs of the APA, provided information to Parties and non-Party stakeholders on the highlights of the work conducted so far, areas where coherence is needed, and what measures are proposed to enhance collaboration among the various bodies to achieve balance and comprehensiveness in the conduct of their work, including addressing linkages on issues that cut across various bodies. Views were invited from Parties on the progress made.
