Delegates from Turkey and China in an informal consultation

On Thursday, 14 September, UNCCD COP 13 delegates convened in a morning plenary of the COP and adopted: a decision on the credentials of delegations, as well as the reports of the Committee on the Review of the Implementation of the Convention (CRIC) and the Committee on Science and Technology (CST).

The Committee of the Whole (COW) contact groups on budget and on other matters met throughout the day and into the evening to consider draft decisions on, among others: Terms of Reference for the CRIC; the future Strategic Framework; policy advocacy on drought; and synergies with other Conventions.

IISD Reporting Services, through its Earth Negotiations Bulletin (ENB) Meeting Coverage, has provided daily web coverage, daily reports, and a summary and analysis report from the UNCCD COP 13. The summary and analysis report is now available in HTML and PDF.
