The Maritim Hotel, venue of the Bonn Climate Change Talks - May 2009
The thirtieth sessions of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) and Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the sixth session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action under the Convention (AWG-LCA) and the eighth session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Further Commitments for Annex I Parties under the Kyoto Protocol (AWG-KP) will take place from Monday 1 June to Friday 12 June 2009 in the Maritim Hotel, Bonn, Germany.

The focus under the AWG-LCA is expected to be on the draft negotiating text prepared by the AWG-LCA Chair Michael Zammit Cutajar (Malta), covering the key elements of the AWG-LCA's work programme: mitigation; adaptation; finance; technology; and a shared vision on long-term cooperative action.

AWG-KP 8 is expected to consider two documents prepared by its new Chair John Ashe (Antigua and Barbuda), namely a proposal for amendments to the Kyoto Protocol under Article 3.9 (Annex I parties’ further commitments), and a text on other issues, such as land use, land-use change and forestry, and the flexibility mechanisms. AWG-KP 7 also agreed to continue considering Annex I parties' aggregate emission reductions in the post-2012 period “as a key focus” of AWG-KP 8.

The SBI will take up, inter alia, agenda items on technology transfer, capacity building, national communications and the financial mechanism. The SBSTA will consider agenda items including the Nairobi Work Programme, reducing emissions from deforestation in developing countries (REDD), technology transfer and various methodological issues under the Convention and the Kyoto Protocol.
