Author Commentary 1

UNFCCC Article 6(a)(i)
The chapeau of the provision indicates that this activity is a means of carrying out the commitments of Parties under UNFCCC Article 4.1(i).

Author Commentary 2

CBD Decision VII/5, Annex I
This refers to Subparagraph 2(e)(i) of Appendix 1, specific work plan on coral bleaching. The action is identified as being of highest priority for implementation. Global warming is the most widespread stressor of coral reefs, but known localized human-induced stresses exacerbate events.

This refers to Paragraph 9(e). The suggested responsibilities for this focal point include the identification of areas for possible international cooperation and opportunities for strengthening synergies with other conventions and the coordination in the preparation of the Article 6 (education, training and public awareness) chapter in the national communications.
