The Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action under the Convention (AWG-LCA), at its second session, invited Parties to submit to the secretariat ideas and proposals and, where appropriate and to the extent possible, specific textual proposals on the elements contained in paragraph 1 of the Bali Action Plan (decision 1/CP.13), taking into account the interlinkages among the elements and the specific subparagraphs under each of the elements, in order to focus the consideration of all the five elements by the AWG-LCA. At its third session, the AWG-LCA invited its Chair to prepare a document assembling the ideas and proposals presented by Parties on the elements contained in paragraph 1 of the Bali Action Plan, taking into account the ideas and proposals presented by accredited observer organizations. The ideas and proposals shall be those received by 30 September 2008 in response to the invitations contained in the Bali Action Plan and in the conclusions of the first and second sessions of the AWG-LCA, as well as those that were presented during the first three sessions and in the in-session workshops. Given the large number of submissions by Parties that arrived soon after 30 September, the Chair, in preparing the document referred to paragraph 2 above, intends, to the extent possible, to take into account submissions received by 10 October. The secretariat has received 32 such submissions from 19 Parties. As requested by the AWG-LCA, they have been posted on the UNFCCC website.3 In accordance with the procedure for miscellaneous documents, these submissions are attached and reproduced in the language in which they were received and without formal editing. The secretariat will continue to post on the UNFCCC website any submissions received after the issuance of the present document. The secretariat will also issue an addendum to this document prior to the fourth session of the AWG-LCA to include submissions that are received after 10 October. Submissions received from accredited intergovernmental organizations will be compiled in document FCCC/AWGLCA/2008/MISC.6.
