priority activity 2

Priority Activity 2:
Provide advice and scientific information to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and other international bodies, to enable more effective adaptation

PROVIA is, in a number of ways, an active provider of scientific information to the UNFCCC process, and is now a designated partner of the Nairobi Work Programme (NWP). The NWP is undertaken under the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) of the UNFCCC to, among others, improve understanding and assessment of VIA to climate change. PROVIA was also involved in the Research Dialogue of the SBSTA in 2011 as well as in the preceding workshop in June 2011. In 2012, PROVIA participated in the SBSTA Research Dialogue by presenting the draft PROVIA list of global research priorities.

PROVIA is using the opportunity to organize a panel discussion at COP-18 in Doha to communicate information to the UNFCCC, governments, international agencies and VIA experts. An overview of the PROVIA research priorities and PROVIA Guidance will be presented at the side event, with the intention of initiating further dialogue and research coordination among VIA experts and the policy community.
