CAN lessons to be taken from the developing country mitigation workshop at Bangkok 4 April 2011.
Developing country action: Where are Parties after Cancun?
In Cancun Parties agreed on keeping warming below 2°C and agreed to consider moving to 1.5°C. It was also agreed
that developing country Parties take nationally appropriate mitigation actions in the context of sustainable
development that would be supported and enabled by technology, financing and capacity building with the aim of
achieving a deviation in emissions relative to ‘business as usual’ emissions in 2020. Parties also decided to develop a
registry to record mitigation action seeking international support and to facilitating the matching of action and
support. Developing country parties were also encouraged to develop low-carbon development strategies or plans in
the context of sustainable development.
