Abstract

The Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA), at its thirty-sixth session, initiated its consideration of the work programme on the revision of the guidelines for the review of biennial reports and national communications, including national greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories, for developed country Parties. The SBSTA invited Parties to submit views on the elements of the work programme and on the timeline of proposed activities, as well as on the key elements of the revision of the review guidelines, and requested the secretariat to prepare a synthesis report of Parties' submissions. This report provides a synthesis based on submissions from six Parties as at 12 November 2012. It will serve as an input to further discussions by the SBSTA at its thirty-seventh session on the revision of the guidelines for the review of biennial reports and national communications, including national GHG inventories
