Travel support to attend climate change meetings

The financial procedures for the Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC, its subsidiary bodies and its permanent secretariat contain a provision for the establishment of the Trust Fund for Participation in the UNFCCC Process to support the participation of eligible representatives from developing country Parties and Parties with economies in transition in the meetings of the COP and its subsidiary bodies. Two representatives from each LDC Party are funded for participation in the sessions of the subsidiary bodies, and three representatives are funded for participation in the sessions of the COP. At least two delegates per LDC Party are supported to participate in training workshops conducted by the LEG, subject to the availability of adequate resources. Priority is also accorded to the LDCs in other workshops and events organized under the COP and its subsidiary bodies.
