Bonn Climate Change Conference - June 2014

One rest day allocated during June meeting

Following the recommendation made by the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) that future sessions be scheduled from mid-week to mid-week, where possible, in order to reduce the amount of travel time required (FCCC/SBI/2009/8, paragraph 115), the secretariat has made arrangements for having the fortieth sessions of the Subsidiary Bodies (SB 40) and the fifth part of the second session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP 2.5) from Wednesday, 4 June to Sunday, 15 June 2014, in accordance with decision 1, CP 17, paragraph 8.

In order to safeguard the health and well-being of participants, and in accordance with practice at past sessions, Monday, 9 June, has been set aside as a "meeting-free day". The conference venue and registration will be closed on that day, which is also a public holiday in Bonn (Pentecost).
