Subsidiary Bodies Convene in Bonn

The 26th sessions of the UNFCCC Subsidiary Bodies (SB 26) started on Monday morning. The Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) considered agenda items on research and systematic observations, methodological issues, the Nairobi work programme on impacts, vulnerability and adaptation, cooperation with relevant international organizations, mitigation, technology transfer, and reducing emissions from deforestation in developing countries. The Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) took up issues such as arrangements for intergovernmental meetings, administrative, financial and institutional matters, national communications, education and public awareness, capacity building, adverse effects, response measures, and the financial mechanism.

Above: UNFCCC Executive Secretary Yvo de Boer reflected on his first eight months in the post and urged a long-term global response to climate change.
