from Tuesday, 21 November:
Delegates convened in Plenary to hear high-level
statements from Parties. Over 70 speakers, including four Vice
Presidents, two Deputy Prime Ministers, and more than 60 Ministers,
made presentations. Delegates also met for informal high-level
Plenary meetings and in smaller negotiating groups to progress talks
on the key outstanding issues. These discussions took place within
the framework of four issue “clusters,” including: capacity
building, technology transfer, adverse effects and guidance to the
GEF; the mechanisms; land use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF);
and compliance, policies and measures, and accounting, reporting and
review under Protocol Articles 5, 7 and 8.
