Contributing to national climate change strategies and work programme

Second Biennial Update Report (BUR2) Inception Workshop
9 January 2018

The 17th Session Conference of the Parties (COP 17) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) decided that the first Biennial Update Reports (BURs) from non-Annex I Parties (developing countries) be submitted by December 2014. The subsequent reporting should be done biennially either as a summary of parts of the national communication in the year when this is submitted by the respective countries or as a stand-alone update report. Malaysia is a member of the non-Annex I Parties.

The BUR should include information and updates of national greenhouses (GHGs) inventories, including a national inventory report and information on mitigation actions, needs, and support received. The report provides updates on actions undertaken by a Party to implement the Convention, including the status of its GHG emissions and removal by sinks, as well as actions to reduce emissions or enhance sinks.

Organised by the national focal point, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MNRE), the Second Biennial Update Report (BUR) Inception Workshop brought together representatives from the relevant government agencies and NGOs. The Centre for Coastal and Marine Environment (CMER) represented MIMA.
