Highlights for Thursday, 13 March 2014

Delegates from Sweden and Saudi Arabia in informal consultations

Negotiations continued on Thursday at the fourth meeting of the second session of the Ad Hoc Working Group of the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP 2-4) under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Delegates convened throughout the day for the technical expert meeting on energy efficiency and the open-ended consultations on Item 3 (implementation of all items related to Decision 1/CP.17, establishment of the ADP).

In the morning, the technical expert meeting on energy efficiency continued presentations of national experiences, implementing energy efficiency policies and technology. This was followed by a panel on finance, technology and capacity-building, examining support available for enhancing action on energy efficiency. In the afternoon, participants discussed how the UNFCCC can engage on the issue of energy efficiency.

In the morning, the open-ended consultations addressed: finance, technology and capacity-building (means of implementation (MOI)); mitigation; and equity and ambition. In the afternoon, the open-ended consultations focused on transparency of action and support, and other issues related to elements.

On MOI, discussions addressed, inter alia: whether to treat finance, technology and capacity building separately; the role of historical responsibility in finance; and how to leverage private finance. Consultations on mitigation touched on a range of issues, including: whether targets should be economy wide; whether nationally-determined contributions include mitigation only or all elements of the Durban Platform; a mechanism for increasing contributions over time; and accounting rules. During the consultations on equity and ambition, delegates discussed the application of the equity principle to burden sharing in the 2015 agreement.

On transparency, the open-ended consultation addressed possible components of ex ante and ex post systems to assess nationally determined contributions. Discussions in the open-ended consultations on other issues addressed: market and non-market based mechanisms; response measures; and a compliance mechanism.
