This informal overview text aims to reflect the exchanges and views, interventions and options presented by Parties in their consideration of the various agenda items of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action under the Convention (AWGLCA) this year. It builds upon the informal overview note by the Chair made available on 5 September 2012, at the end of the informal additional session of the AWG-LCA held in Bangkok, Thailand. In some areas, the overview text also presents attempts by the Chair to give further structure to the elements under consideration in order to identify a potential way forward. This overview text is made available by the Chair in an effort to facilitate discussions among Parties on the different ideas and proposals presented, with a view to completing the work of the AWG-LCA and reaching the agreed outcome pursuant to decision 1/CP.13
