Time allocation: The workshop comprised three-hour sessions from 10 to 11 November 2016.  Each Party was allocated 35 minutes on average, as follows:

a. Opening –1 minute each to introduce each Party;
b. Presentation –15 minutes per Party on average to present their BUR;

Output of the FSV: A record of the FSV, summarizing the presentation by the Party and corresponding interaction with other Parties, was prepared, under the guidance of the SBI Chair, for each Party that went through the FSV. This, together with the summary report, constituted the final output of the ICA for each Party and was made available on the UNFCCC website: here.
