IISD Reporting Services - COP 22 - CMP 12 On Friday, 11 November, the UN Climate Change Conference continued in Marrakech, Morocco. Throughout the day, negotiations took place in contact groups and informal consultations under the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) and the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) and the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Paris Agreement (APA).

Informal consultations under the APA addressed: modalities and procedures for the effective operation of the committee to facilitate implementation and promote compliance; global stocktake; modalities, procedures and guidelines for the transparency framework for action and support; further matters related to implementation of the Paris Agreement; further guidance in relation to the mitigation section of Decision 1/CP.21; and further guidance in relation to the adaptation communication, including, inter alia, as a component of nationally determined contributions (NDCs). In the afternoon, the APA convened in a contact group to discuss all of its substantive agenda items, with reports back from informal consultations.

The facilitative dialogue on enhancing ambition and support took place under the Conference of the Parties (COP) in the afternoon. The COP Presidency also held informal consultations on the first session of the COP serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA 1).
