In July 2015, during a session of UNCITRAL that took place in Vienna, WGII reported to UNCITRAL a summary of its findings, its concerns and recommendations.
The mandate given by UNCITRAL to the WGII is broad enough to include different possible forms of work, namely, (i) a guidance text, (ii) a model legislative provisions, and most importantly (iii) a convention.
WGII has a mandate to prepare a convention on the enforceability of international commercial settlement agreements resulting from mediation/conciliation ("Convention").
There is no doubt that the WGII will have many challenges to cover when preparing the Convention and the other aspects of its work.
Overall, IPCC AR4 summarized the situation by noting that the literature on adaptation costs and benefits remains "quite limited and fragmented" (Adger and others 2007, in IPCC WGII 2007).
