Documents Related to overall Management Response:
1. Recommendation:
  • Since the short time available was a challenge for concluding the inventory of LULUCF sector emissions, it is recommended that the next National Communication carry out as soon as possible the signing of contracts needed for work on research and data collection and processing;
  • The fact that the CGMC/MCTIC includes career civil servants was advantageous leads to the recommendation that more such people be incorporated in the team;
  • Because of the precarious nature of fellowship grants, primarily for the Climate Network, it is recommended that high-level agreements between MCTIC and CNPq be made about continuity;
  • Since there were difficulties in the use of the super-computer, it is recommended that resources be allocated to overcoming this weakness of infrastructure, namely, the use of data and forms of backup and storage. It is also recommended that a person be placed in charge of coordinating use of this infrastructure;
