The technical expert meeting on addressing non-carbon dioxide (non-CO2) greenhouse gases will allow
Parties, international organisations, the private sector and other relevant stakeholders to:
- Share views and experiences on options and opportunities to bridge the pre-2020
- Consider good practice mitigation actions and existing incentives,
- Identify barriers for scaling up measures to address non-CO2 GHG emissions from a
array of sources, and
- Propose options to overcome such barriers.
The discussion will be informed by highlighting mitigation actions implemented at the national level
in different regions. The meeting will help participants explore options on how to further strengthen
co-operation regarding mitigation ambition, including through the targeted utilization of existing
UNFCCC institutions and mechanisms and forging new partnerships, to strengthen ongoing efforts to
address the increase in non-CO2 GHG emissions.
In Warsaw, the ADP requested the secretariat to organize, under the guidance of the ADP Co-Chairs,
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.
The series of technical expert meetings was launched at the ADP March session with a focus on renewable energy and energy
efficiency and continued at the June
meeting, where opportunities for action on urban
environment and land use were examined.
In October, technical expert meetings will focus on opportunities for action on non-CO2 greenhouse
gases and carbon capture, use and storage. Experts from
Parties are 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 are 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
Further information on the technical expert meeting, including a provisional programme, will be
available in due course.
