The United Nations released on 5 October 2015 the first draft of the new climate change agreement and presented it to the governments for consideration.

The draft of the agreement is a concise basis for negotiations for the negotiating session from 19-23 October 2015 in Bonn. Co-Chairs Ahmed Djoghalf of Algeria and Daniel Reifsnyder of the United States prepared the draft in response to a request from countries to have a better basis from which to negotiate.

Governments were expected to reach a full agreement at the UN Climate Change Conference taking place in Paris in December 2015.
