CRIC logo

The CRIC was established by decision 1/COP 5, as subsidiary body to the COP to assist it in regula​​​​​​​​rly reviewing the implementation of the Convention.

Parties at COP 9 adopted new Terms of Reference of the CRIC and decided that the CRIC will become a standing subsidiary body of the COP.

According to its Terms of Reference, the CRIC shall assist the COP in the review of the implementation of the Convention under the authority and guidance of the COP and as an integral part of the Performance Review and Assessment of Implementation System.​
At COP 11, Parties decided that the CRIC work on best practices should focus on some thematic topics, while the CST on others; and that at intersessional sessions, the CRIC will make  recommendations to Convention's institutions and subsidiary bodies on priority of their work programmes.
