Following country positions in ADP

Last update: 7:00 p.m. 12/12 – CoChairs have closed ADP and will now report to minister Pulgar-Vidal. All parties interventions are in the chart.


Last night, Peruvian Minister Manuel Pulgar-Vidal asked the ADP Co-Chairs to prepare a new draft decision to work on INDC and work stream 2 (which is the pre2020 actions parties should take to reduce emissions prior to 2020). They delivered a text with “options” on four paragraphs. In paragraphs 7, 9, 11 and 13, the text offers options that countries can take depending on what they feel best represent their positions. Minister Pulgar-Vidal is now asking the parties to decide on these options.

However, many more issues remain, specially on the role developed and developing countries should play. Other hot-topics are loss and damage, Common But Differentiated Responsibilities (CBDR), the role of civil society –including youth, women and indigenous people– and many more. This we can address later. Now, I wish to summarize position on parties regarding options on these four paragraphs.
