The Bonn Climate Change Conference convenes from 16 to 26 May 2016 at the World Conference Center Bonn, in Bonn, Germany. The meeting comprises the 44th sessions of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI 44) and Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA 44), as well as the first session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Paris Agreement (APA 1).

The SBI is expected to take up several agenda items, including: reporting; matters related to the Kyoto Protocol’s mechanisms; least developed countries; national adaptation plans; third review of the Adaptation Fund; capacity building; response measures; and gender. In relation to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, the SBI will consider several issues, including the registry of nationally determined contributions and the scope and modalities for the periodic assessment of the Technology Mechanism.

The SBSTA is expected to consider, inter alia: the Nairobi work programme; agriculture; science and review; response measures; methodological issues under the Convention and the Kyoto Protocol; and market and non-market mechanisms. In relation to the Paris Agreement, SBSTA will consider several issues, including the technology framework; matters related to Article 6 (cooperative approaches); and modalities for accounting financial resources provided and mobilize through public interventions.

The APA is expected to consider modalities and further guidance for several articles of the Paris Agreement, including: nationally determined contributions (Article 4); transparency framework for action and support (Article 13); global stocktake (Article 14); and mechanism to facilitate implementation and promote compliance (Article 15). The APA will consider preparations for the entry into force of the Paris Agreement and the convening of the first Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Agreement.
