On Friday, 23 October, the eleventh part of the second session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP 2-11) concluded. In the morning, an open-ended contact group convened to consider the way forward. Spin-off groups then convened on: preamble; mitigation; adaptation, and loss and damage; finance; technology development and transfer, and capacity building; compliance and final clauses; transparency; global stocktake; and workstream 2.

In the afternoon, a compilation text that included the work of each of the spin-off groups was released. In the evening, the open-ended contact group convened to hear comments on the text and proposals on the way forward. Parties agreed the Secretariat would prepare a technical paper proposing streamlining and consolidation options and that the text, with several omissions rectified, would be forwarded to Paris as it is. Following a brief closing plenary, ADP 2-11 suspended at 7:42 pm.
