Form of decisions Source: sproutcontent.com  If best-practice guidance, what could be developed outside UNFCCC?
  • 6. 6 Climate Change Expert Group Questions for discussion  Should accounting rules be developed before, at the same time, or after communication of nationally determined mitigation contributions?  What bodies (inside or outside UNFCCC) should undertake the development of accounting rules and/or guidance on information provision and “bounded flexibility”?
