Research dialogue

Decision 9/CP.11 (FCCC/CP/2005/5/Add.1) lay the foundation for the research dialogue and requested the SBSTA to regularly consider research needs and systematic observation relating to the Convention.

SBSTA 26 (FCCC/SBSTA/2007/4, paragraph 47) agreed to develop and maintain the research dialogue in the context of decision 9/CP.11. Relevant research programmes and organizations were invited to regularly inform the SBSTA of developments in research activities to support the needs of the Convention, including: emerging scientific findings, research planning activities, research priorities and gaps, research capacity building activities particularly in developing countries, regional climate change research networks and relevant communication issues.

Decision 16/CP.17 (FCCC/CP/2011/9/Add.2) urges Parties, in particular developing country Parties, and invites regional and international research programmes and organizations active in climate change research to utilize the research dialogue as a forum for discussing needs for research and capacity building and conveying research findings and lessons learnt.
