Members of the Technology Executive Committee 

The TEC comprises 20 expert members, elected by the COP, who serve in their personal capacity and are nominated by Parties with the aim of achieving a fair and balanced representation, as follows:
  • Nine members from Parties included in Annex I to the Convention (Annex I Parties);
  • Three members from each of the three regions of the Parties not included in Annex I to the Convention (non-Annex I Parties): Africa, Asia and the Pacific, and Latin America and the Caribbean (GRULAC);
  • One member from a small island developing State (SIDS);
  • One member from a least developed country Party (LDC).

The TEC elects annually a Chair and a Vice-Chair from among its members for a term of one year each, with one being a member from an Annex I Party and the other being a member from a non-Annex I Party.
The positions of Chair and Vice-Chair alternate annually between a member from an Annex I Party and a member from a non-Annex I Party.
