The Committee elected Ibero Solana (Europe representative) as AC 25 Chair, and Caroline Caceres (North America representative) as Vice-Chair by acclamation.

The AC Plenary addressed organizational matters and established a working group on the Review of Significant Trade (RST), an informal group on strategic planning, and a drafting group on the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES). The working group on RST is expected to convene on Tuesday afternoon, all day Wednesday and on Thursday morning.
