Highlights for Monday, 29 April 2013
UNFCCC The opening plenary of the second session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP 2) took place on Monday morning at the World Conference Center Bonn. Co-Chair Jayant Moreshwar Mauskar (India) recalled agreement at COP 18 in Doha that the ADP move in 2013 to a more focused mode of work.

The ADP adopted the agenda (FCCC/ADP/2013/1) and agreed to the organization of work (ADP.2013.1.InformalNote). Parties also agreed to suspend ADP 2 on Friday and resume it in June. Co-Chair Mauskar informed delegates that the ADP would decide on Friday whether to establish a contact group co-chaired by the ADP Co-Chairs. Parties and observer organizations made opening statements.

The ADP also began its consideration of the agenda item on implementation of all the elements of decision 1/CP.17 (Durban Platform for Enhanced Action), which includes workstreams 1 (the 2015 agreement) and 2 (pre-2020 ambition).
