Informal meeting of experts on enhancing coordination of capacity-building activities in relation to using the IPCC guidance and guidelines, as a basis for estimating forest-related greenhouse gas emissions and removals, forest carbon stock and forest area changes,
Bonn, Germany, 25–26 May 2010
 


Background
 

The conference of Parties, in its decision 4/CP.15 on "Methodological guidance for activities relating to reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation and the role of conservation, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks in developing countries," requested the secretariat to enhance coordination of capacity-building activities in relation to using the guidance and guidelines by the IPCC as a basis for estimating forest-related greenhouse gas emissions and removals, forest carbon stocks and forest area changes, in the context of existing initiatives (paragraph 6).

This informal meeting of experts was one of the activities being proposed and organized by the secretariat to fulfil this mandate.



The objectives of this meeting were to:
 
  • Identify issues and gaps, particularly technical and methodological issues and gaps, being faced by developing countries in relation to their use of the IPCC guidance and guidelines in the estimation of emissions and removals, forest carbon stocks and forest area changes.
     
  • Encourage sharing of experiences and good practice in the use of the IPCC guidance and guidelines among developed and developing countries.
     
  • Develop recommendations on how to enhance coordination among Parties, relevant organizations and other stakeholders in ongoing and planned efforts in using or on supporting capacity-building on the IPCC guidance and guidelines, in the context of existing initiatives.
      
  • Identify products and/or activities that are ongoing and/or that could be developed that facilitate enhancement of coordination of capacity-building efforts.
