IISD Reporting Services - COP 22 - CMP 12

On Tuesday, the UN Climate Change Conference in Marrakech, Morocco, convened. In the morning, the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Paris Agreement (APA) met in a contact group to discuss all its substantive agenda items, and the joint COP/CMP plenary resumed to hear statements.

Several contact groups and informal consultations under the SBI, SBSTA and APA convened throughout the day. The APA met in informal consultations on: further guidance in relation to the mitigation section of decision 1/CP.21 (the Paris outcome); modalities, procedures and guidelines for the transparency framework for action and support; matters relating to the global stocktake; modalities and procedures for the effective operation of the committee to facilitate implementation and promote compliance; and further matters related to the implementation of the Paris Agreement.

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).
