Highlights for Tuesday, 15 October 2013
IPCC-37
During the second day of the 37th session of the IPCC, held in Batumi, Georgia, the IPCC adopted the 2013 Wetlands Supplement to the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories. Much of the day’s discussions focused on another item: the future of the IPCC. The Panel decided to establish a Task Group on this issue, and convened an open-ended small group, co-chaired by New Zealand and Saudi Arabia, to develop terms of reference.

The Panel also addressed matters related to the UNFCCC and other international bodies, the admission of observer organizations, the effectiveness of the IPCC Executive Committee, and other business. Participants discussed procedural matters, including electronic versions of IPCC reports as a document of record, the possibility of convening Bureau sessions through electronic means, and implementation of Panel decisions on governance and management.

On the agenda for the remainder of the week are, among other things: the acceptance of the 2013 Revised Supplementary Methods and Good Practice Guidance arising from the Kyoto Protocol related to land use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF); implementation of the IPCC conflict of interest policy; and the IPCC programme and budget.
