The structured expert dialogue (SED) of the 2013-2015 review

In 2012, the COP decided to establish a structured expert dialogue (SED) to support the work of a Joint Contact Group of SBSTA and SBI and to ensure the scientific integrity of the review through a focused exchange of views, information and ideas.

Ensuring the scientific integrity of the 2013-2015 review, the SED was an appropriate vehicle for open and substantive discussions between Parties on the scientific knowledge and evidence based climate policy formulation. It considered scientific information relevant to the review through regular scientific workshops and expert meetings and assisted the preparation and consideration of synthesis reports on the review.

The SED held four sessions and completed its work in February 2015. A brief summary can be found here.

The final report on the SED is contained in FCCC/SB/2015/INF.1 and summarises the face-to-face dialogue between over 70 experts and Parties that took place during the four SED sessions. The report features a technical summary, which synthesises the work done by the SED and includes 10 messages capturing the key findings emerging from its sessions.
