Ad-hoc Panels

Following Article 24 of the Convention, the Conference of the Parties (COP) may, as necessary, appoint ad hoc panels to provide it, through the CST, with information and advice on specific issues regarding the state of the art in fields of science and technology relevant to combating desertification and mitigating the effects of drought. The terms of reference and modalities of work of each ad hoc panel, including its duration, were determined by the COP. Each ad hoc panel appointed by the COP is composed of experts whose names are taken from the roster of independent experts, taking into account the needs for a multi-disciplinary approach, an appropriate gender balance, and broad and equitable geographical representation.

Ad hoc panels were in the past appointed by the COP on traditional knowledge, early warning systems and benchmarks and indicators. Related information and relevant documents can also be found under previous thematic topics considered by the CST.


In the following, the page provides access to resources on previous meetings of the ad hoc panels of the CST and their reports.
