Impact of the implementation of response measures

Parties shall take into full consideration, in the implementation of the commitments of the Convention, the specific needs and concerns of developing country Parties arising from the impact of the implementation of response measures. When addressing climate change concerns, the Kyoto Protocol commits Parties to strive to minimize adverse economic, social and environmental impacts on other Parties, especially developing country Parties, and in particular those identified in Articles 4.8 and 4.9 of the Convention, taking into account Article 3 of the Convention. Article 4.8 of the Convention and Articles 2.3 and 3.14 of the Kyoto Protocol provide a basis for addressing the impact of the implementation of response measures. Response measures are further being addressed in the context of the Bali Roadmap process, the Cancun Agreements and the Durban Outcome as outlined below.

Outlook to SB 43


 

 


 
 
 


 

During the last sessions of the Subsidiary Bodies, Parties had very fruitful discussions on the draft decision text forwarded by COP 20, contained in the Annex of Decision 20/CP.20, and made significant progress by accepting a draft decision text proposed by the facilitators and agreeing to forward it to SB 43 for further discussion.

The SBs also invited Parties to make submissions on the further elaboration of the work programme on the impact of the implementation of response measures and the modalities for its implementation.

At SB 43, Parties will continue discussions on the draft decision text contained in the annex of FCCC/SB/2015/L.2. The sessions will take place from 30 November to 11 December 2015 in Paris, France.

The above mentioned submissions can be found here (this link will be available once the submissions are received).
