2.  Refined proposals for fine-tuning the Rio marker definitions, eligibility criteria and guidance

 

This session considered refined proposals to improve the Rio marker climate change adaptation and mitigation definitions, eligibility criteria, examples and guidance so as to improve the quality of data collection.  These proposals were developed through initial consultation in the Second and Third Task Team meetings in 2014, and most recently through the March Small Working Group discussion.
