ADP - ADP 2-6
20 - 25 Oct 2014

The Co-Chairs' corner


Based on views and proposals from governments, the Co-Chairs have made key material available in advance of the next negotiating session.

The material that the Co-Chairs have published includes a note that reflects on progress made at the previous ADP session, as well as a paper presenting views and proposals of governments on the elements for a draft negotiating text for the 2015 agreement. The material further includes a draft decision on information that governments will provide when they communicate their contributions to the 2015 agreement and a draft decision on continuing important mitigation-related work in the period up to 2020.

The material captures the richness and collective progress that has been made thus far on the road to Paris. It aims to further facilitate the understanding of issues and options on the table.

In preparing for the meeting in October (ADP 2-6), the Co-Chairs of the ADP will continue their engagement and open channel of communication with Parties and Observers. In this context, the Co-Chairs have made themselves available to engage with Parties and Observers and to participate in meetings with negotiating groups with a view to consult with them on the work of the ADP.

The Co-Chairs have recently attended the:
- Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate (10-12 July 2014, Paris, France);
- 5th Petersberg Dialogue, “Addressing the urgency – stepping up our contributions” (13-15 July 2014, Berlin, Germany).

The Co-Chairs will visit the UNFCCC secretariat to advance the preparations for the upcoming meeting in October (10-11 September 2014, Bonn, Germany).

The Co-Chairs plan to attend the:
- Informal Ministerial Roundtable on Climate Change (20 September 2014, New York, USA)
- Climate Summit 2014 (23 September 2014, New York, USA);
- International Dialogue on Enhancing Ambition through Climate Finance held by CCAP (24 September 2014, New York, USA);
- Informal Meeting held by the Peruvian Presidency of COP20/CMP10 (1-3 October 2014, Lima, Peru).

Follow up work on the technical examination process to unlock mitigation opportunities for raising pre-2020 ambition

The technical examination process to unlock mitigation opportunities for raising pre-2020 ambition includes focused in-depth inter-sessional work to be conducted throughout the year by Parties, international organizations and partnerships with a view to enabling more Parties to take transformational action on the ground in delivering higher mitigation ambition. Contact details of lead organisations and partnerships, which are keen to assist Parties in undertaking ambitious action on the specific topics addressed are available on the technical expert meetings' respective webpages.



Support for the domestic preparation of intended nationally determined contributions                      

In the context of support for the domestic preparation of intended nationally determined contributions (decision 1/CP19, paragraph 2(d)) and further to the pdf-icon message to operating entities of the financial mechanism of the Convention, and observer organizations, a briefing was held during the March session to provide space for such organizations to share information with Parties on their programmes of support. The Co-Chairs would like to encourage Parties and organizations to continue the exchange initiated in March and to actively engage with each other as needed. To facilitate this interaction, additional information on support for domestic preparations, including the contact details of relevant organizations is available here.  


The Co-Chairs can be contacted via e-mail at
