UNCCD COP 13 participants reconvened during parallel morning and afternoon sessions, and discussed agenda items in the Committee on Science and Technology (CST) and the Committee for the Review of the Implementation of the Convention (CRIC). Contact groups met in the afternoon and evening to discuss draft decisions related to the COP, CRIC and CST agendas.
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.
