On Thursday, 10 December, negotiations continued on the draft Paris outcome. Following all night consultations, parties met informally in the afternoon.
The open-ended group of legal and linguistic experts conducting the review of the paragraphs of the draft agreement forwarded by the Comité de Paris also met in the afternoon.
The Conference of the Parties (COP) plenary considered agenda items and adopted decisions on organizational matters, matters related to finance and the reports of the subsidiary bodies, capacity building, the Adaptation Committee, and the Technology Executive Committee (TEC) and Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN), among other items.
Also in the afternoon, the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP) plenary considered agenda items and adopted decisions, including on: organizational matters; issues related to the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and Joint Implementation (JI); and the report of the high-level ministerial on increased ambition of Kyoto Protocol commitments.
A revised draft Paris outcome text was presented in the Comité de Paris at 9:00pm, which then closed to allow for consultations by parties. An “indaba of solutions” then convened throughout the night to address all remaining unresolved items in the text.
