Delegates from G-77/China in informal consultations before the start of the ADP plenary

The fourth meeting of the second session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP) under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) convened on Monday, 10 March, in Bonn, Germany, at the World Conference Center Bonn. In the morning, ADP Co-Chair Artur Runge-Metzger, EU, opened the meeting with UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres calling on parties to use the support of stakeholders as “wind in their sails” to make the session successful and productive.

The work of the meeting proceeded on the basis of the agenda (ADP/2013/AGENDA) adopted at the first part of ADP 2, which took place from 29 April-3 May 2013, in Bonn, Germany. Parties agreed to the organization of work outlined in the scenario note (ADP.2014.2.InformalNote) and gave opening statements. In the afternoon, the open-ended consultations on ADP item 3 (implementation of all items related to Decision 1/CP.17, establishment of the ADP) discussed the issue of adaptation, including: the place of adaptation in the 2015 Agreement; building on existing adaptation institutions; loss and damage; a global goal for adaptation; and means of implementation. The technical expert meeting on renewable energy also convened with organizations and countries presenting on options for realizing mitigation opportunities within the renewable energy sector.
