International bunker fuels under the AWG-LCA
 
At its thirteenth session (Bali, Indonesia, December 2007), the COP instructed the AWG-LCA to develop its work programme at its first session in a coherent and integrated manner, and invited Parties to submit to the secretariat their views regarding the work programme. International bunker fuels has been a subject of discussions under the AWG-LCA in the context of paragraph 1b(iv) of the Bali Action Plan, cooperative sectoral approaches and sector-specific actions. In this context, various options have been put forward for discussions by Parties.
 
Chronological development under the AWG-LCA

Second part
AWG-LCA 15 
Doha Qatar, Nov./Dec. 2012               

Parties continued their work on cooperative sectoral approaches and sector-specific actions (agenda item 3biv). Throughout the meeting, Parties could not bridge their diverging views on how to address cooperative sectoral approaches and sector specific actions, including emissions from international aviation and maritime transport. The proposed compromise text by the chair of the AWG-LCA (FCCC/AWGLCA/2012/L.4) was rejected by Parties which is why the agenda item on sectoral approaches is not part of Decision 1/CP.18, the agreed outcome pursuant to the Bali Action Plan.
