IISD Reporting Services - COP 22 - CMP 12 On Saturday, 12 November, the UN Climate Change Conference continued in Marrakech, Morocco. In the morning an informal stocktaking plenary was convened by the COP President. Contact groups and informal consultations under the Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP), the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) and the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) convened throughout the day.

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