Group of experts on Biodiversity and Climate change



Photo: Ivana d’AlessandroAt its 26th meeting, the Standing Committee to the convention set up a Group of Experts on Biodiversity and Climate Change to exchange information and review the effects of climate change in the biological diversity covered by the convention, and to provide guidance to Parties in developing adaptation and management policies. The final aim of the Group is to present to the Standing Committee specific proposals, guidance and/or Recommendations to help Parties address the challenges of climate change in the implementation of the convention and its objectives.

The Group has successfully fulfilled its first work-plan. A select Group of experts will meet in April 2015 to propose new areas of work.
