UN Climate Change logoThe Ad hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP) on the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) met in Geneva, Switzerland, February 8-13.

The UNFCCC is designed to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases that adversely affect climate change. Ambassador Rhoda Jackson, Bahamas permanent representative in Geneva and Philip Weech, director of BEST Commission, represented The Bahamas.

The ADP centred discussions on elements for inclusion in the negotiating document to be adopted at the 21st session of the Conference of Parties (COP-21) scheduled to be held in Paris, France, in December this year.

Among those issues discussed during the week were climate financing, adaptation, mitigation and support for technology and capacity building.

The Bahamas Chamber of Commerce and Employers Confederation has said that it will focus on small and medium size enterprises in 2015. Watch a ZNS Network news report here.
