CAN Briefing Paper: Text suggestions WS2, October 2015

~~Parties to the UNFCCC recognize that current pre-2020 mitigation efforts are insufficient to get the world onto an emissions pathway consistent with the 1.5°C limit. The ADP Workstream 2 (WS2) was set up to address this gap in pre-2020 ambition, which, according to UNEP, is at least as 8-10 Gt CO2e in 2020.

CAN believes the revised draft COP decision for pre-2020 climate action  holds merit as a basis for building a strong WS2 outcome in Paris. The final decision must however enable a move from discussion of opportunities to implementation on the ground. This document highlights crucial elements in need of further development as well as detailed textual proposals.
