ADP Technical Expert Meetings: Energy efficiency

12-13 March 2014, Bonn, Germany 


In Warsaw, the ADP requested the secretariat to organize, under the guidance of the ADP Co-Chairs, technical expert meetings at each of the sessions of the ADP in 2014 to share policies, practices and technologies and address the necessary finance, technology and capacity building, with a special focus on actions with high mitigation potential. During the March session, technical expert meetings focused on opportunities for action on renewable energy and energy efficiency. At the session in June, technical expert meetings considered opportunities for action on urban environment and land use.Experts from Parties were encouraged to come prepared with actions and initiatives that Parties would like to advance, to share experience and engage in discussions oriented at achieving concrete and practical results. Organizations that are active in the respective areas were also encouraged to participate by sharing good practices and initiatives being undertaken with Parties and their potential for broader engagement, as well as by sharing information on different sources of support available to developing countries.
