The Bali Climate Change Conference brought together more than 10,000 participants, including representatives of over 180 countries together with observers from intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations and the media.
Governments adopted the Bali Road Map, a set of decisions that represented the various tracks that were seen as key to reaching a global climate deal.
The Bali Road Map includes the Bali Action Plan, which launched a "new, comprehensive process to enable the full, effective and sustained implementation of the Convention through long-term cooperative action, now, up to and beyond 2012", with the aim of reaching an agreed outcome and adopting a decision at COP15 in Copenhagen. Governments divided the plan into five main categories: shared vision, mitigation, adaptation, technology and financing. Please click here for the full text of the Bali Action Plan .
Other elements in the Bali Road Map included:
The Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action (AWG-LCA) was set up to conduct work under the Bali Action Plan. The Ad Hoc Working Group on Further Commitments for Annex I Parties under the Kyoto Protocol (AWG-KP) was to work in parallel. The central task of the AWG-KP was to decide the emission reduction commitments of industrialized countries after the Kyoto Protocol's first commitment period expired in 2012.
