Concerning the practical options to further enhance scientific methodologies and approaches on the description of areas meeting the EBSA criteria, the Subsidiary Body requested the Secretariat to further develop options for peer review and subsequent consideration by the Conference of the Parties. The revised options will be annexed to the draft decision for the consideration of the Conference of the Parties.

17 Agenda item 15 Voluntary specific work plan on biodiversity in cold-water areas within the jurisdictional scope of the Convention areas (SBSTTA XX/4) In decision XII/23, the COP requested the Executive Secretary to prepare, in collaboration with Parties, other Governments and relevant organizations, a draft specific workplan on biodiversity and acidification in cold-water areas, building upon the elements of a workplan on physical degradation and destruction of coral reefs, including cold-water corals and in close linkage with relevant work under the Convention and with relevant work of competent organizations. The Executive Secretary facilitated the preparation of a scientific compilation and synthesis on biodiversity and acidification in cold-water areas, and prepared a draft workplan (UNEP/CBD/SBSTTA/20/INF/25. This document will be published in the CBD Technical Series).

18 Agenda item 15 Work plan on biodiversity in cold-water areas (contd.) SBSTTA 20 addressed these matters and, in its recommendation XX/4, prepared a draft decision for COP, including as annexes, key messages from the scientific compilation and synthesis on biodiversity and ocean acidification in cold-water areas and a voluntary specific workplan on biodiversity in cold-water areas within the jurisdictional scope of the Convention Decision VII/5, annex I, appendix 2.
