The third part of the sixteenth session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Further Commitments for Annex I Parties under the Kyoto Protocol (AWG-KP 16) and the third part of the fourteenth session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action under the Convention (AWG-LCA 14).

Date: Saturday, 1 October to Friday, 7 October 2011
Venue: Centro de Convenciones ATLAPA
City: Panama City, Panama

The organization of the work for the third part of AWG-KP 16 will be the same as for the June session, with Parties continuing to engage in the policy discussion in the contact group and in the work on the more specific issues in the spin-off groups. The Chair of the AWG-KP will prepare a scenario note in a timely manner before the third part of the session.

The organization of the work for the third part of AWG-LCA 14 will be similar to that for the June session, with Parties continuing their work on all agenda items in informal groups under the contact group. As agreed at the June session, this work will also take into account recommendations made at the session for focused in-depth discussion that would facilitate progress, in particular on technical issues. In consultation with the Vice-Chair and the facilitators, the Chair of the AWG-LCA will prepare a proposal on the organization of the work for the third part of AWG-LCA 14. The Chair will present the proposal through his scenario note in a timely manner before the third part of AWG-LCA 14, and will consult with Parties on the proposed approach.
