 This includes an action conducted by CAN, where hundreds from civil society stood on the plattform of the soccer stadium. The temporaory plenaries are placed in the middle of the soccer field and the chant from the action penetrated the thin plenary walls.

Short summary of negotiations up to the “short huddle”
 *with reservation for faults in the summary until this text is removed* Main element being discussed is paragraf 2 b. To invite all Parties to initiate or intensify domestic preparations for their intended nationally determined commitments towards achieving the ultimate objective of the Convention and to communicate them well in advance of the twenty-first session of the Conference of the Parties in a manner that facilitates the clarity, transparency and understanding of the intended commitments
; “
 In the discussion concerning paragraf 2b, there is a clear division between two blocks. ALBA + LMG + BASIC vs AILAC + EU + UG. What the first mentioned blocks wants is to keep the more domestic approach on commitments introduced by the ADP outcome. Meaning a bottom up national approach. They do want to keep the standard provisions of the convention, keeping the annex definitions the way the were declared in rio 1992. The second block wants to keep the top down approach on a national level. The block also wants to redefine standard provisions of the convention, due to the changes that countries have experienced in the past 20 years. What we can take from earlier negotiations this week is that second block have compromised a lot on the standard provisions of the convention. What to take out of this is that it is probably more likely that BASIC will give away on the way to approach commitments in the ADP outcome. Thanks to Ties Mouven, NL youth delegate, for providing an expert update.

 4e, comment from Switzerland
keep “to developed countries”, but add something on support “for other countries to do so?”
 Move commitments to COP20 -> specific date.
Suggest compromise: 2b, 1st line to: “To invite all Parties to initiate or intensify national preparations for
their intended c
ommitments”, also change facilitate to ensure
 2C: June 2014 instead of cop20 Yada yada essential to keep working.
“We feel your text has indeed brought us together” “It’s the closest marker that us in these room, and indeed our generation…”
“All future agreements must be under and within the convention”, built up since Rio etc. “We must resist the attempt to open doors that lead outside the convention”.
