Parties shall take into full consideration, in the implementation of the commitments of the Convention, the specific needs and concerns of developing country Parties arising from the impact of the implementation of response measures. When addressing climate change concerns, the Kyoto Protocol commits Parties to strive to minimize adverse economic, social and environmental impacts on other Parties, especially developing country Parties, and in particular those identified in Articles 4.8 and 4.9 of the Convention, taking into account Article 3 of the Convention. Article 4.8 of the Convention and Articles 2.3 and 3.14 of the Kyoto Protocol provide a basis for addressing the impact of the implementation of response measures. Response measures are further being addressed in the context of the Bali Roadmap process, the Cancun Agreements and the Durban Outcome as outlined below.

Outlook to SB 40
 
The forum and the work programme on the impact of the implementation of response measures mandated by decision 8/CP.17, will continue at the 40th session of the Subsidiary Bodies from 4-15 June 2014 in Bonn, Germany.

In the last session, Parties engaged in active discussions on the review and the need for continuation of the forum on the impact of the implementation of response measures. Since Parties did not reach conclusions on this matter, based on a statement made by the representative of Fiji on behalf of the G77 and China and in view of the outcome of the discussions (FCCC/CP/2013/L.14), the COP decided to include this item on the provisional agendas of SBSTA 40 and SBI 40.
