The final aim of the Group was 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. Since its creation, the Group forwarded to the Standing Committee for adoption ten comprehensive draft recommendations, providing guidance on topics such as addressing climate change in mountain regions, in protected areas, in European islands, or addressing topics such as wildland fires, conservation translocations, marine biodiversity. Having fulfilled the first programme of work on Biodiversity and Climate Change, the Standing Committee has now convened an Ad Hoc Group of experts to prepare proposals for the future work.
