Highlights for Wednesday, 1 May 2013
UNFCCC

On Wednesday morning, a roundtable took place on adaptation in relation to Workstream 1 (2015 agreement). Co-Chair Harald Dovland noted general agreement that adaptation should be included in the 2015 agreement, and that many parties stressed the importance of a balance between adaptation and mitigation. He identified convergence on using existing institutions, saying they may need to be strengthened, and noted proposals, inter alia, for a workshop and a technical paper. A roundtable on the means of implementation also took place in relation to Workstream 1. Co-Chair Muskar summarized that the discussion had addressed finance, technology and capacity building, and noted views that monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) is essential for all three pillars. He also recalled proposals for roundtables and technical papers, saying these can be further discussed on Friday.


On Wednesday afternoon,  ADP 2 convened a workshop on land-based mitigation opportunities in relation to Workstream 2 (pre-2020 ambition), which explored the role of national actions in increasing ambition, the role of international cooperative initiatives in strengthening national actions, and the role of means of implementation in facilitating an increase in ambition. Delegates heard two expert presentations on: managing land use and forests - a scientific perspective on carbon conservation and sequestration; and an overview of experience on the ground in the area of land use and climate change, challenges and opportunities. Some delegates described their national experiences and views on what further steps the ADP could take to advance its work on increasing ambition.
