UNFCCC Releases LULUCF Document to Help Advance Negotiations

17 August 2009: The UNFCCC Secretariat has published a document to assist parties to make voluntary informal submissions of basic data on land use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF), with descriptions of assumptions and uncertainties.

The document includes a table and a list of data/information that could facilitate further consideration of the LULUCF options.

This document follows a request from parties during the August intersessional informal consultations for information to facilitate discussion of underlying assumptions and uncertainties during the ninth session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Further Commitments for Annex I Parties under the Kyoto Protocol (AWG-KP), scheduled to take place from 28 September-9 October 2009 in Bangkok, Thailand.
