What is the AWG-KP?
In 2005, the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol
(CMP) at its first meeting in Montreal, by its
decision 1/CMP.1, established
the Ad Hoc Working Group on Further Commitments for Annex I Parties under the Kyoto Protocol (AWG-KP).
The AWG-KP was established to discuss future commitments for industrialized countries under the
Kyoto Protocol. The AWG-KP reported to the CMP.
In 2012, the CMP, at its eighth session, adopted decision 1/CMP.8 (the Doha
Amendment). In doing so, the CMP decided that the AWG-KP had fulfilled the mandate
set out in decision 1/CMP.1, and that its work was concluded.
