AWG-KP Closing Plenary
  On Friday afternoon, the closing plenary of the AWG-KP convened.

In closing, Chair John Ashe (Antigua and Barbuda) emphasized that “a higher level of ambition remains central to our work” and told parties he would see them in “three short weeks” in Barcelona, urging parties to use the intersessional period to consult with one another so that real progress could be made at the second part of AWG-KP 9.
