This will seek to parse the text of the decision launching the Ad-Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP), with a view to distilling the central premises of the negotiations for a post-2020 climate regime, as well as identifying expected gaps.
The Durban Climate Change Conference in December 2011 arrived at a set of historic decisions under the climate regime, 36 hours after the conference ended. Over the last few years, the climate regime has been plagued by uncertainty and doubt over its ability to meet climate goals and uncertainty over its future, particularly that of the Kyoto Protocol, 1997.
Parties at Durban strengthened the climate regime, implementing the Cancun Agreements, 2010 and extending the Kyoto Protocol for a second commitment period, launching a process to negotiate a post-2020 climate regime. The ADP is intended to craft the agreement that will govern, regulate and incentivise the next generation of climate actions.
