Analysis of coherence and coordination gaps and needs related to capacity-building activities under the Convention (technical paper)

On the basis of its interaction and collaboration with other relevant bodies, actors and processes under the Convention to date, and the information contained in the annual compilation and synthesis report on the capacity-building work of bodies established under the Convention and its Kyoto Protocol, and the addendum thereto, the PCCB agreed to prepare an analysis of coherence and coordination gaps and needs related to capacity-building activities under the Convention, and to present it in the form of a technical paper to be annexed to its 2019 technical progress report.

The PCCB considered and agreed on the concept note for the technical paper at its third meeting in June 2019. Following the meeting, working group 1 prepared and disseminated a survey to gather views and perspectives from a broad range of relevant stakeholders on the technical paper, including constituted bodies, operating entities of the Financial Mechanism, UN agencies and other international organizations, and registered observer institutions under the UNFCCC.

The survey is accessible to interested stakeholders under the link below:

The technical paper will be finalized in August/September 2019. Survey responses received by 9 August will be considered in the finalization of the paper.
