UNFCCC Publishes AWG-KP Scenario Note

22 March 2010: The UNFCCC Secretariat has published the scenario note (FCCC/KP/AWG/2010/2) for the 11th session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Further Commitments for Annex I Parties under the Kyoto Protocol (AWG-KP 11), which will be held in conjunction with the ninth session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action under the Convention (AWG-LCA 9), from 9-11 April 2010, in Bonn, Germany.

The note indicates that the first session of the AWG-KP in 2010 should be devoted to further advancing its work and to setting the stage for the remainder of 2010. Parties are invited to consider: how to conclude work on all outstanding issues by the sixth session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (COP/MOP 6); and whether there is a need for any technical work to support the work of the AWG-KP in 2010. Parties are also invited to consider modalities for advancing the work of the Group and the appropriate number of sessions for 2010. [AWG- KP Scenario Note]
