Bonn notes

I am sitting right now in the Ad-hoc Working Group on the Amendment to the Kyoto Protocol (AWG-KP).

  • S. Africa want some kind of update on future agreement, can be mid-term review, doesn’t need to be
  • Columbia wants longer commitment period (c.p.), mid-term review in each period
  • Africa for longer period (=less discussion, safe time and money)
  • AOSIS: does EU really want to take the risk of 3°?
  • Philippines: shorter c.p. (2013-2017/2018-2022),
  • Australia: open to 450ppm aim or lower
  • Japan: period to short if only 4 years, not support two consecutive c.p. Because it “freezes the current distinction between developed and developing states”
  • AOSIS: Australias policy gives no hope to stay below 450ppm, need to have a 45% reduction among Annex I Parties (A1)
  • Czech Republic: open to proposals
  • Australia: also open to length of c.p. – but had only ONE c.p. in mind
  • Panama: no certainty in markets
  • Costa Rica: there is the need to adjust UP, not Down and Science gives us constantly reason to do so
  • Switzerland: mandate goes from 20-30%
  • S.Africa: Australia wants to include “advanced economies” of non-A1 into the A1 – which one?
  • Japan: 45% reduction only domestic or with offsetting (at AOSIS)
  • Gambia supports Senegal, need for longer c.p., possibility of review when IPCC bring out next report
  • Micronesia: gets nerved, “Thank you Madam Chair, I try not to be as encrypting as Australia has been…”, “I am happy to clarify for Japan…”
  • India: need for a band of time (one year is not good, much can happen), long c.p.
  • tbc
