Committee for the Review of the Implementation of the Convention (CRIC)

Established by COP 5 in 2001 as a subsidiary body, it reviews and analyzes national reports submitted to the COP that describe the status of the Convention’s implementation by Parties and observers with a view to improve the coherence, impact and effectiveness of policies and programmes aimed at restoring the agro-ecological balance in the drylands. It meets annually as at 2002. Its terms of reference are subject to renewal at COP 7 in 2005.
