IISD Reporting Services - COP 22 - CMP 12 On Thursday, 10 November, the UN Climate Change Conference continued in Marrakech, Morocco. In the morning, the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Paris Agreement (APA) convened in a contact group to discuss all of its substantive agenda items, with reports back from informal consultations.

Throughout the day negotiations took place in 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). Informal consultations under the APA addressed: further matters related to the implementation of the Paris Agreement; further guidance in relation to the adaptation communication, including, inter alia, as a component of nationally determined contributions (NDCs); modalities and procedures for the effective operation of the committee to facilitate implementation and promote compliance; and global stocktake.

The facilitative sharing of views (FSV) under the international consultation and analysis (ICA) process for developing country parties under the SBI also took place. 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).
