By its decision 1/CP.16, paragraph 93, the Conference of the Parties (COP) decided to provide a forum on the impact of the implementation of response measures, and to that end requested the Chairs of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) and the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) to convene such a forum at the thirty-fourth and thirty-fifth sessions of these bodies, with the objective of developing a work programme under the subsidiary bodies to address this impact, with a view to adopting, at the seventeenth session of the COP, modalities for the operationalization of the work programme and a possible forum on response measures.

The SBSTA and the SBI, at their thirty-fourth sessions, invited Parties and relevant to submit to the secretariat, by 19 September 2011, further views on the issues referred to in paragraph above for consideration by the SBSTA and the SBI at their thirty-fifth sessions.
