What is the ADP?
The Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP) is a subsidiary body that was
established by decision
1/CP.17 to develop a protocol, another legal instrument or an agreed outcome with legal force under
the Convention applicable to all Parties. The ADP is to complete its work as early as possible but no
later than 2015 in order to adopt this protocol, legal instrument or agreed outcome with legal force at
the twenty-first session of the Conference of the Parties and for it to come into effect and be
implemented from 2020.
