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.

At SB 41, Parties will continue discussions on how to take the way forward. The sessions will take place from
1-12 December 2014 in Lima, Peru.
