The Committee agreed to extend the mandate of its Working Group on Climate Change for another two years. The Committee requested Ms. Manaenkova to continue as Chair, and that the Group hold further in-depth discussions on its Plan of Activities and Priorities in 2012. The Committee also agreed to include “mitigation” as an additional priority focus area for the Group and urged closer coordination with the UNDG Task Team on Environmental Sustainability, Climate Change and Rio +20. Finally, the Committee agreed to invite the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to participate in the work of the Group. On this basis, the Committee will revert to this issue at its spring 2014 (27th) session with periodic updates from the Chair of the Working Group to the Committee.
