The Bonn Climate Change Conference continued on Wednesday. Informal consultations met throughout the day to discuss issues under the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Paris Agreement (APA), the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) and the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA).

Several mandated events also met, including: an in-session workshop to develop possible elements of the gender action plan under the UNFCCC; two Technical Expert Meetings (TEMs) on mitigation, focusing on agriculture and on forestry and other land use; the 6th meeting of the Durban Forum; the 9th meeting of the research dialogue; and the ad hoc Technical Expert Group on the impact of the implementation of response measures.
