mercredi 8 septembre 2021 to vendredi 10 septembre 2021

The Virtual Special Meeting of the Commission was held over two days in September 2021 (9th and 10th). This meeting was called because the Covid-19 pandemic forced the Commission to delay its in-person biennial, which is now scheduled to take place in September 2022.

The Special Virtual Meeting addressed only urgent issues which could not be delayed for a year, principally the budget. As with in-person meetings, the plenary record is accessible to all interested parties via the IWC YouTube channel. The focus of the meeting was the IWC budget for 2022 and the second day of the plenary also provided an opportunity for the main sub-groups of the Commission to present an update on their work during the intersessional period. For more details, please see the annotated provisional agenda.
