A representative of Youth NGOs asked AWG-KP Chair John Ashe to marry her. Since he is a custodian of the Protocol in his role as AWG-KP Chair, and she loves the Protocol, she suggested that true love needs a legally-binding commitment.

The AWG-KP concluded its in-session workshop on the scale of Annex I parties’ emissions reductions on Tuesday morning. It subsequently held discussions in contact groups on Annex I emission reductions, “other issues” such as LULUCF, and legal matters. The AWG-LCA resumed work in its main contact group, which agreed on the organization of work for the rest of the week. Delegates then split into closed drafting groups that met late morning and throughout the afternoon. Three groups convened on Tuesday, focused on: mitigation; adaptation; and finance, technology and capacity building. The groups started discussions on the Chair’s revised text (FCCC/AWGLCA/2010/8).
