UNFCCC Publishes Proposed Additions to AWG-LCA 14 Agenda

2 April 2011: The UNFCCC Secretariat has published a document with supplementary provisional agenda items (FCCC/AWGLCA/2011/Add.3 and Add. 4) for the Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action under the Convention (AWG-LCA) at its 14th session.

This follows a request from the Gambia, on behalf of the least developed countries (LDCs), and Grenada, on behalf of the Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS), to include items under other matters on the provisional agenda. The Gambia's submission concerns review of information provided by developed countries on the resources provided to fulfil fast-start finance commitments. Grenada's submission addresses options and ways to increase the level of ambition of developed party economy-wide emission reduction targets.

Also, New Zealand, on behalf of Canada, New Zealand and Switzerland, requested that the UNFCCC Secretariat include an item entitled "Agriculture" on the provisional agenda.  The AWG-LCA will be invited to consider these issues when adopting its agenda for the meeting. [AWG-LCA 14 s supplementary provisional agenda] [AWG-LCA 14 further supplementary provisional agenda]
