UN Climate Change Conference
Qatar is hosting the 2012 UN Climate Change Conference. It
will be held in Doha from November 26 - December 7, 2012.
Sessions of the 18th Conference of the Parties (COP18) to
the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the 8th
Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP8) will be held at the Qatar
National Convention Centre in Doha.
There was a negation session in Bangkok in preparation for
Doha. A tangible progress on three fronts that are under negotiations at the
moment will be met in Doha. Firstly, the second commitment period of Kyoto
protocol will be discussed. Parties want to move forward and they need to
decide how the second commitment period comes into being, what rules, length,
limitations, and all technical details are. Overall, they are interested in the
rules of the second commitment period.
Secondly, it is necessary to complete the work under LCA or
Long-term Cooperative Action. Countries will complete actions and move forward
by adapting a network with institutions that will support the work of
developing countries on mitigation and adaptation. Before closing LCA,
Scientific Review is going to be launched next year. This Scientific Review is
the process that will help countries to determine whether their perused
ambitions of mitigation match real necessities of current situations.
Finally, Durban Platform for Enhanced Action known as ADP
will be discussed. At this stage, countries will negotiate two major issues –
the increase of current ambitions and their development up to 2020 and the
context under which countries will negotiate a new global agreement that will
be finalized by 2015 and then put into action by 2020. Among the three fronts’
discussions and negotiations, decisions at the political level will be
confronted and addressed in Doha.
