A workshop on equitable access to sustainable development (EASD) was organized by the secretariat, under the guidance of the Chair of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action under the Convention (AWG-LCA), and was held on 16 May 2012 in Bonn, Germany. The workshop provided an opportunity for participants to exchange views on EASD and equity in general, including on the following: the context for equity and EASD; the definition of equity; application of the equity principle; and possible next steps. Discussion points included the following: decoupling carbon dioxide emissions from economic growth; national circumstances; historical and future responsibilities; and the suggested way forward. The main points raised at the workshop can serve as input to relevant further discussion and consideration by the AWG-LCA at its resumed fifteenth session.
