Abstract
This updated technical paper compiles information on the mitigation and sustainable development benefits of actions, initiatives and options to enhance mitigation ambition identified in the submissions by Parties and accredited observer organizations submitted to the secretariat under the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action workstream 2 on pre-2020 ambition. This technical paper comprises three separate documents: the main text, contained in document FCCC/TP/2013/8, and two addenda, contained in documents FCCC/TP/2013/8/Add.1 and FCCC/TP/2013/8/Add.2. The main text contains a summary of the main findings, which are substantiated with more detailed information in the two addenda. Addendum 1 provides an overview of existing mitigation pledges by Parties and the emissions gap and summarizes information on the mitigation benefits of actions and initiatives to enhance mitigation ambition, on barriers to enhancing mitigation ambition and ways to overcome them, and on incentives for actions. It also covers options related to finance, technology and capacity-building for supporting implementation of mitigation action by developing country Parties
