Youth advocate for delegates to 'do the right move' to reach a climate agreement

On Saturday, 5 December, the 12th part of the second session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP 2-12) contact group convened in the morning, followed by the ADP closing plenary, which adopted its conclusions and forwarded a draft agreement and decision to the Conference of the Parties (COP) under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The COP met in the evening to hear the report of the ADP and decide on the mode of work going forward.

Informal consultations under the COP and the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP) continued throughout the day.
