The budget contact group engaged in protracted negotiations throughout the day, with delegates debating whether the AHTEGs mandated by the COP/MOP should be covered out of the budget or rely on voluntary contributions; and whether a post for the Biosafety Division of the Secretariat should be upgraded.
