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.

In the context of this technical examination process and enhancing the visibility of actions with high mitigation potential, the Co-Chairs of the ADP have requested the secretariat to cluster and enhance the visibility of side events and exhibits in Lima directly relevant to the acceleration of Pre-2020 action. In responding to this request, the secretariat, in consultation with Parties and observer organizations, has identified the events which address cross-cutting aspects of the thematic areas explored by the TEMs in 2014, namely broad action by individual Parties and cross-cutting support for action  by organizations and institutions. In addition events has been identified which address the following thematic areas explored by the TEMs in 2014.         

Renewable energy

Energy efficiency

Land use

Urban environment

Non-CO2 greenhouse gases

Carbon capture, use and storage

In addition to these side-events a range of exhibits by Parties and observer organizations focussing on the promotion and delivery of enhanced pre-2020 action will be available through-out the two week's of the conference in the exhibits area. Pre-2020 mitigation action will also be showcased during the NAMA day (Saturday, 6 December 2014).
