JI Supervisory Committee Launches Calls for Public Inputs

UNFCCC27 June 2011: The Joint Implementation (JI) Supervisory Committee (JISC) has launched two calls for public inputs on: the draft recommendations to the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (COP/MOP); and guidance on criteria for baseline setting and monitoring. The two calls are open until 22 July 2011.

The first call for input relates to the COP/MOP's request to the JISC to make recommendations on options for building on the JI approach, as part of the first review of the JI guidelines. At its 25th meeting, the JISC considered draft recommendations for the options and identified a number of areas where further development is needed. It agreed to launch a call for public inputs on the current draft recommendations and to highlight specific questions raised through the recommendations and the discussions of the JISC. Respondents are invited in particular to consider specific questions contained in the draft recommendations. The results of the call are expected to be an important input for the JISC's recommendations to the COP/MOP on the review of the JI guidelines.

The second call relates to the planned revision of the “Guidance on criteria for baseline setting and monitoring.” At its 25th meeting, the JISC considered the draft revision of the guidance and agreed to launch this call for public inputs, in order to include inputs received in the draft document to be considered by the JISC at is 26th meeting.
