Highlights for Thursday, 2 May 2013
UNFCCC

On Thursday morning, two roundtables took place. During the roundtable on catalyzing action in relation to Workstream 2 (pre-2020 ambition), delegates discussed possible ways for catalyzing action, including through addressing sectors with high mitigation potential, such as renewable energy and energy efficiency. During the roundtable on mitigation in relation to Workstream 1 (2015 agreement), some delegates identified key elements for commitments in the context of the future agreement. Co-Chair Harald Dovland (Norway) noted "numerous" references to nationally determined commitments, and suggested further discussions on these, including on possible timeframes.

On Thursday afternoon, two roundtables took place. During the roundtable on transparency of action and support in relation to Workstream 1, delegates expressed their views on enhancing transparency of: mitigation action; and means of implementation, including financial support. A roundtable on building a practical and results-oriented approach to increasing pre-2020 ambition (Workstream 2) also took place. Parties addressed, inter alia, renewable energy, energy efficiency, HFCs, REDD+, fossil fuel subsidies, means of implementation, results- and needs-based approaches, unilateral measures and ministerial engagement.


During a special lunchtime event, UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres and the ADP Co-Chairs met with observers, who were invited to respond to the points raised during the workshops and roundtables.
