In Warsaw, the ADP requested the secretariat to organize, under the guidance of the ADP Co-Chairs, technical expert meetings at each of the sessions of the ADP in 2014 to share policies, practices and technologies and address the necessary finance, technology and capacity building, with a special focus on actions with high mitigation potential.
In June, technical expert meetings focused on opportunities for action on urban environment and land use. Experts from Parties were encouraged to come prepared with actions and initiatives that Parties would like to advance, to share experience and engage in discussions oriented at achieving concrete and practical results. Organizations that are active in the respective areas were also encouraged to participate by sharing good practices and initiatives being undertaken with Parties and their potential for broader engagement, as well as by sharing information on different sources of support available to developing countries.
Follow up work on technical examination process to unlock mitigation opportunities for raising pre-2020 ambition
Follow-up meeting to the technical expert meetings on energy efficiency, renewable energy, urban environment and land-use improvements in the pre-2020 period
23 October 2014, 3 to 6 p.m.
The Co-Chairs have requested the secretariat to facilitate a follow-up meeting to the technical expert meetings on energy efficiency, renewable energy, urban environment and land-use improvements in the pre-2020 period. The meeting allowed Parties to take stock of actions undertaken since the technical expert meetings in March and June and to identify further opportunities for action in the areas considered thus far.
As indicated by the Co-Chairs in their message to Parties and observers, the technical examination process 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. In the context of facilitating follow-up actions arising from the technical expert meetings in collaboration with relevant UNFCCC institutions, international organizations and initiatives, contact details of lead organisations and partnerships, which are keen to assist Parties in undertaking ambitious action urban environmentand land use are made available on this webpage.
