In order to facilitate the timely completion of the Paris Agreement work programme (PAWP) at the 24th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 24) to the UNFCCC, an additional negotiating session will convene between the 48th session of the UNFCCC Subsidiary Bodies (SBs 48) and COP 24.
Slated to be held in Bangkok, Thailand, from 3-8 September, the conference will include sessions of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI), the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) and the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Paris Agreement (APA). Three pre-sessional days (Friday, 31 August – Sunday, 2 September) are also anticipated.
The respective agendas of each subsidiary body will remain as adopted at the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn, Germany, which took place from 30 April to 10 May 2018.
