Durban Platform: Inching Towards a Negotiation Text

Savaresi A (2014) Durban Platform: Inching Towards a Negotiation Text, Environmental Policy and Law, 44 (3), pp. 288-289.

The fourth part of the second session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP) was held in Bonn in March 2014. In Bonn, a coalition of developing countries called for the establishment of a single contact group to address all issues on the ADP agenda. Anxious to dispel fears over the recreation of the conditions that led to the Copenhagen debacle, the ADP Co-Chairs emphasised that the contact group would still be operating in accordance with the ADP mandate, that the process would continue to be "party-driven", and that its outcome will be "collectively constructed based on parties' views expressed in submissions and statements". With regard to the objective of raising the Parties' pre-2020 level of ambition, discussions under workstream 2 moved away from roundtables and open dialogues to embark on technical expert meetings, with further technical workshops on mitigation from land use and urbanisation planned for the June meeting.
