Multilateral assessment process Switzerland

The first multilateral assessment (MA) of Switzerland took place at the Working Group Session (WGS) under the SBI 41 in Lima on 8 December 2014. The aim of this session was to assess Switzerland 's progress in implementation towards the achievement of emission reductions and removals related to its quantified economy-wide emission reduction targets.

The WGS was preceded by a three-month period of questions and answers in the lead-up to the SBI session in Lima when the MA took place.
