FIRST MEETING OF THE ADP IN 2014 WITH SPECIAL FOCUS ON RENEWABLES AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY WRAPS up IN BONN
At the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn (10 - 14 March), countries got down to the business of fleshing out how a new universal agreement on climate change might look by the deadline of Paris 2015 as part of worldwide efforts to keep a global temperature rise under 2 degrees Celsius this century. This week's meeting of the "Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action" (ADP) marked the start of an intense year with a calendar of meetings. The ADP also saw the launch of technical expert meetings, which are to continue throughout the year, and which are to spur new national policies and new examples of cooperation which can then be showcased at COP 20 in Lima at the end of this year. The first technical expert meetings focussed on renewable energy and energy efficiency.
