The range of topics addressed during the two teleconferences varied from the current situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, to the calendar of competitions, the 2021 IFSC Paraclimbing World Championships in Moscow (RUS) and the classification rules.

About the IFSC Paraclimbing Committee: the IFSC Paraclimbing Committee was unanimously elected during the 2019 IFSC Plenary Assembly in Tokyo (JPN), replacing the Paraclimbing Commission and being invested with a much more operational role, in order to represent the Paraclimbing community more broadly.
