UNFCCC Publishes AWG-LCA and AWG-KP June Meeting Reports

28 June 2010: The UNFCCC Secretariat has released the report (FCCC/KP/AWG/2010/7) of the 12th session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Further Commitments for Annex I Parties under the Kyoto Protocol (AWG-KP) and the report (FCCC/AWGLCA/2010/7) of the tenth session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action under the Convention (AWG-LCA), held in Bonn, Germany, from 1-11 June 2010.

In its conclusions, the AWG-KP requests the Secretariat to, inter alia: organize an in-session workshop at AWG-KP 13 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; and organize, before AWG- KP 13, subject to the availability of supplementary resources, a pre-sessional workshop on forest management accounting, including any new available information, taking into account progress made during AWG-KP 12 regarding the use of reference levels. The AWG- LCA did not adopt conclusions at the June session. [AWG-LCA Report] [AWG-KP Report] [Climate Change Policy & Practice Story on the UNFCCC June Talks]
