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 mitigation 
     ambition gap,
  -  Consider good practice mitigation actions and existing incentives,
  -  Identify barriers for scaling up measures to address non-CO2 GHG emissions from a wide
     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.

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 countries.

Background information

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.

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.
