Previous sessions
 

The AWG-LCA at its first session (Bangkok, Thailand, 31 March - 4 April 2008) agreed to undertake its work, seeking progress on all the elements assigned to it by the Bali Action Plan, and identified specific workshops to be held in 2008.
At the second session (Bonn, Germany, 2-12 June 2008), Parties presented a number of concrete ideas and proposals on how to address the elements of the Bali Action Plan: shared vision, mitigation, adaptation, technology and finance. At its third session (Accra, Ghana, 21-27 August 2008), the AWG-LCA invited its Chair to assemble ideas and proposals into a document which could serve as a first version of a negotiating text. This Assembly document was updated by the Chair of the AWG-LCA, at the fourth session of the Group (Poznań, Poland, 1-10 December 2008).
At the same session, the AWG-LCA agreed to shift into a full negotiating mode. For that purpose, the AWG-LCA also requested its Chair to prepare a document, for consideration at its fifth session (Bonn, Germany, 29 March - 8 April 2009), that would further focus the negotiating process on the fulfilment of the Bali Action Plan and on the components of the agreed outcome.
The Group also requested its Chair to prepare a negotiating text for consideration at the sixth session of the AWG-LCA (Bonn, Germany, 1-12 June 2009). The document took account of the proceedings of the AWG-LCA at its fifth session and of further submission received from Parties by 5 May 2009.
During the sixth session, Parties provided general comments on the structure and content of the negotiating text, stated reservations and objections to elements of the text, and proposed additions and modifications. This resulted in a revised negotiating text (FCCC/AWGLCA/2009/INF.1), which was the basis for discusions at the intersessional informal consultations (Bonn, Germany, 10 - 14 August 2009).  The revised negotiating text, as well as material reflecting the work undertaken at the informal consultations are available here.
The AWG-LCA at its seventh session ( Bangkok, Thailand, 28 September - 9 October 2009 and Barcelona, Spain, 2-6 November  2009) requested the secretariat to compile the texts contained in the latest available non-papers produced by the chairs, co-chairs and facilitators of the groups during the seventh session of the AWG-LCA into an annex to the report on its seventh session (FCCC/AWGLCA/2009/14) for facilitating negotiations of the AWG-LCA at its eighth session in order to enable the Conference of the Parties to reach an agreed outcome at its fifteenth session.  
The AWG-LCA at its eighth session prepared conclusions presenting the outcome of the work of the AWG-LCA to the COP. The report of the AWG-LCA on its eighth session, held in Copenhagen from 7 to 15 December 2009 includes an annex containing the draft texts presented to the COP at its fifteenth session and is contained in document FCCC/AWGLCA/2009/17. The work undertaken by the Conference of the Parties at its fifteenth session on the basis of the report of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action under the Convention has been issued as document FCCC/CP/2010/2.
Further to the extension of the mandate of the AWG-LCA (decision 1/CP.15), the ninth session of the AWG-LCA was held in Bonn, Germany, 9 - 11 April 2010 and focussed on organizational matters. The AWG-LCA invited its Chair to prepare a text to facilitate negotiations among Parties ( FCCC/AWGLCA/2010/6) and agreed that, in order to conclude its work, it would need to hold two sessions between its tenth session and the sixteenth session of the COP.


All documents of the AWG-LCA are available here

Workshops and other activities:  The AWG-LCA at its first session agreed that its work should be facilitated by workshops and other activities to clarify and deepen understanding of the elements contained in the Bali Action Plan.
