Highlights for Thursday, 17 October 2013

On Thursday, the IPCC concluded its 37th session. Participants adopted the IPCC’s budget, the terms of reference for its Task Group on the future work of the IPCC, and the 2013 Revised Supplementary Methods and Good Practice Guidance arising from the Kyoto Protocol.

Work among experts finalizing the 2013 revised supplementary methodologies on land use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF) had been ongoing and came to a conclusion in Plenary on Thursday morning. The KP LULUCF Supplement is critical as it is used for compliance with targets under the Kyoto Protocol.

Discussions on setting terms of reference for a Task Group on the future work of the IPCC carried on for much of the afternoon with participants making constructive progress and finally adopting the document.
