Badges handed out during the Lima Climate Action High-level meeting

In the morning, the Lima Climate Action High-Level Meeting took place. The Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP) contact group on item 3 briefly convened in the morning and was then suspended pending consultations among negotiating groups on the way forward. The contact group reconvened late in the afternoon but agreement could not be reached on how to move forward.

Informal consultations took place throughout the day under the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP). An informal stocktaking plenary took place in the evening. Later in the evening the ADP contact group convened shortly for the ADP Co-Chairs to present a revised draft decision text, which parties agreed to discuss on Friday morning.
