Following the workshops on low-emission development opportunities (Tuesday, 30 April, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.) and on opportunities for mitigation and adaptation related to land use (Wednesday, 1 May, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.), two round table discussions (180 minutes each) are scheduled for the remainder of the session. The round tables have been designed to focus on how the ADP can catalyse action and build a practical and results-orientated approach to increasing pre-2020 ambition. The round tables on workstream 2 are currently envisaged as follows:

  • Round table 1 - Catalyzing action (Tuesday, 30 April 15:00 to 16:30 and Thursday, 2 May 10:00 to 11:30)

ADP Co-Chairs’ special event (Thursday, 2 May 2013, 13:00 to 14:30)

Building on the successful experience of the Special Event held in Doha, the Co-Chairs of the ADP will convene another special event with observers. As outlined by the Co-Chairs in their informal note on the second session, the special event is intended to provide observers with an opportunity to present and exchange views contributing to the substantive discussions under the ADP. The exchange is expected to cover both workstreams being carried out under the ADP – workstream 1 on the 2015 agreement and workstream 2 on pre-2020 ambition. The special event will be open to all parties and observers.

Virtual participation is available, including the use of social media (Twitter). Participants outside the conference venue are able to both watch the event online via webcast and provide reactions, views or questions as input to the discussion via Twitter.
