UNFCCC Publishes AWG-KP In-session Workshop Report

6 August 2010: The UNFCCC Secretariat has published the Chair's report (FCCC/KP/AWG/2010/CRP.1) of the in-session workshop on the scale of emission reductions to be achieved by Annex I parties in aggregate and the contribution of Annex I parties, individually or jointly, to this scale.

The workshop was held in Bonn, Germany, on 2-3 August 2010, during the 13th session of the Ad Hoc Working Group of Future Commitments for Annex I Parties under the  Kyoto Protocol  (AWG-KP). The objective of the workshop was to allow for a focused technical discussion on the quantitative implications of the proposals and issues identified by parties in their submissions, and for further exploring a possible enhanced scale of emission reductions to be achieved by Annex I parties, emphasizing the importance of consensus among parties on their overall level of ambition. The report includes: a summary of presentations and discussions; and a section on how to enhance transparency of pledges for emission reductions for Annex I Parties under the Kyoto Protocol. [The Report]
