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:
(a) Nine members from Parties included in Annex I to the Convention (Annex I Parties);
(b) Three members from each of the three regions of the Parties not included in Annex I to the Convention (non-Annex I Parties), namely Africa, Asia and the Pacific, and Latin America and the Caribbean, one member from a small island developing State and one member from a least developed country Party.
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.
