The Bonn Climate Change Conference opened in Bonn, Germany, on Monday, 19 October for the 11th part of the second session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP).

Following a brief opening plenary, the ADP convened in a contact group throughout the morning, debating how to proceed.

They agreed to and continued work in the afternoon in an open-ended contact group, moving article-by-article through the draft agreement text in the Co-Chairs’ non-paper (ADP.2015.8.InformalNote) reflecting individual proposals submitted by parties on the screen. The Co-Chairs reported that the additions to the text would be captured.

In the evening, regional groups consulted on whether the outcome should be presented as a compilation text or be further streamlined by the Secretariat, with a view to reporting back to the Co-Chairs on Monday evening. Parties agreed to reconvene in the contact group on Tuesday morning.
