The report summarizes the country negotiations under the UNFCCC’s Ad Hoc Working Group on Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP), Session 2-9, from June 1-11, 2015, in Bonn. The report concludes that the Bonn session offered little progress toward streamlining the unwieldy Geneva negotiating text, and gained little ground in substantive negotiations toward the formation of a solid draft COP21 decision document. Furthermore, a lack of resolution on key issues such as pre-2020 action and INDC review periods makes forthcoming sessions an increasingly heavy lift for negotiators. Thus, nearly halfway through 2015, the road to Paris remains an uphill climb.
