Carlos Fuller, International and Regional Liaison Officer at the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre is in Bonn, Germany at the Headquarters of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). He is part of a team of technical experts participating in the fifth round of technical analyses of developing countries biennial reports (BURs). This is part of the international consultation and analysis (ICA) which consists of the technical analysis followed by a workshop for facilitating sharing of views under the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI). At COP 17 in Cancun, Mexico in 2010, developing countries agreed to prepare BURs which updates their greenhouse gas inventories and provides information such as the support they have received to undertake climate change actions in their countries and identifies additional support they will require. Small island developing States (SIDS) and least developed countries (LDCs) may submit BURs at their own discretion.
