Participants of the workshop will present their country positions for the 2015 Agreement and focus on the planned Intended Nationally Determined Contributions which countries are preparing in line with decisions adopted by the COP in Warsaw (2013) and in Lima (2014). This will enable the participants to get updates about domestic preparations to INDCs of those among EaP countries that have not yet submitted by then their INDCs to the UNFCCC Secretariat. They will also learn more about domestic preparations to INDCs worldwide and discuss submissions provided to the UNFCCC Secretariat by mid-June 2015.
The workshop will consist of a first day focusing on the exchange between EU and EaP countries. The second day will be mainly used as an opportunity for an exchange on technical aspects of the INDC preparations.
This event is part of a regular series of events, started in October 29-31 2013 in Vilnius, designed to support Partner countries in their preparation for COP, as described in the 2015 countries’ workplans.
This event is being organised in coordination with the Latvian government, which has expressed a special interest in maintaining close cooperation with the Eastern Partnership countries in the context of its EU Presidency.
