The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) held its most recent intersessional meeting of international climate negotiations in Bonn, Germany from June 4-15, 2014. The meeting included discussions under three main ongoing negotiating tracks, including the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP)—the negotiating track aimed at producing a new international climate agreement in Paris, France in 2015—and two additional tracks on technical issues. Two high-level ministerial events on the Kyoto Protocol and the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action were also held on June 5 and 6, respectively. These ongoing negotiations are an important step on the pathway to 2015, and in the lead-up to the next UNFCCC Conference of the Parties, to be held in Lima, Peru later this year.

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) held an intersessional meeting of international climate change negotiations in Bonn, Germany from March 10-14, 2014. This was the fourth part of the second session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform (ADP. 2.4), a negotiating track aimed at developing a new international climate agreement in 2015. The purpose of this meeting was to continue work on the elements of a new climate agreement ahead of this year’s Conference of the Parties (COP 20) in Lima, Peru and in the lead-up to COP 21 in Paris, France in 2015. Specifically, this meeting sought to enrich the substance and core elements of the 2015 agreement, to consider the nature and transparency of countries’ respective contributions to a new international climate agreement, and to raise near-term climate action. The meeting also featured delegate, stakeholder, and non-state actor consultations with technical experts on the session’s themes of renewable energy and energy efficiency.
