This discussion paper describes the state of play in the international negotiations at Poznan, Poland as Parties work to ensure an agreement on technology and financial support that enables mitigation in developing countries. It unpacks and analyzes Parties’ submissions on the topic to the Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action (AWG-LCA) under the Convention as of December 2008. The analysis reveals some convergence and significant differences in views. Resolving these differences will require Parties to elaborate on their ideas, seek to understand the needs that underlie each others’ positions, and work together toward agreement on areas of common interest.
