The Bonn Climate Change Conference continued on Friday. Informal consultations convened 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). The COP 22 and COP 23 Presidencies met with observers to discuss the 2018 facilitative dialogue in the morning. A joint SBSTA/SBI contact group met on the scope of the next periodic review of the long-term goal under the Convention and of overall progress towards achieving it.

Several mandated events convened, including: Technical Expert Meeting (TEM) on mitigation; Paris Committee on Capacity-building; and multilateral assessment.

IISD Reporting Services, through its ENB Meeting Coverage, provided digital coverage, daily reports and a summary and analysis report from the Bonn Climate Change Conference - May 2017.
