Accra Climate Change Talks
21-27 August 2008
Accra, Ghana

Highlights from Tuesday, 26 August

On Tuesday morning, delegates convened in a contact group on mitigation and its associated means of implementation, under the Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action under the Convention (AWG-LCA), and in AWG-LCA informal consultations on the 2009 work programme. Informal consultations were also convened under the Ad Hoc Working Group on Further Commitments for Annex I Parties under the Kyoto Protocol (AWG-KP) on “other issues,” and on land use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF). In the afternoon, two AWG-LCA contact groups met on adaptation and its associated means of implementation; and on delivering on technology and finance, including consideration of institutional arrangements. An AWG-KP contact group on LULUCF also met. The AWG-KP contact group on flexible mechanisms convened in the afternoon and evening, while a “friends of the Chair” group met during the afternoon session.
