Submissions are a very important element of sharing information, building understanding and advancing
work inter-sessionally in a transparent and inclusive manner. In May 2014, the secretariat
introduced this new submission portal to enhance the user-friendliness and
efficiency in submitting and viewing the information and views from Parties.
Parties are invited to use the portal to upload their information and views,
including in response to new/extended calls reflecting the outcomes of the recent sessions of
the Conference of the Parties, the Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the
Parties to the Kyoto Protocol, the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice, the
Subsidiary Body for Implementation, and the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced
Action that took place in Lima, Peru, in December 2014.
The deployment of the new portal is being undertaken in phases to progressively replace the
submission pages previously available on the UNFCCC website and ensure a smooth transition. The
first deployment phase, launched on 21 May 2014, focused on those submissions received as of 1
January 2014 to be considered by the Conference of the Parties (COP) and the Conference of the
Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP) at their upcoming sessions,
and by the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) and the Subsidiary Body
for Implementation (SBI) at their fortieth and subsequent sessions.
The second deployment phase of the portal concerns views submitted by Parties right after the June
session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP 2.5) onwards, to
be considered by the ADP at its current session from 2 to 11 December 2014 (ADP 2.7) and subsequent
sessions. Submissions to be presented as of 14 October 2014 can be uploaded by Parties directly
to the submission portal.
The submission portal is a public site. However, for Parties to be able to upload
submissions, access rights are required. Parties can obtain them by having their National
Focal Point contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information on access rights or other matters related to the launch of this new
submission portal, please contact email@example.com.
