The 16th Meeting of the Consultative Group of Experts (CGE) on National Communications from Non-Annex I Parties to the UNFCCC will meet in Bonn, Germany. The CGE was established by the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the UNFCCC in order to improve national communications and the Biennial Update Reports (BURs) from developing countries through technical advice and support. This group is the main technical support element under the Convention to assist developing country Parties in meeting reporting obligations. The CGE meets to develop its work programme, revise its rules of procedure, assess progress in implementing its work programme and provide recommendations. It also organizes workshops for the preparation of national communications and BURs using CGE training materials.
