Chair Hem Pande, India, during the opening session.

WGRI 5 reconvened on Wednesday, with delegates addressing agenda items on cooperation, including: cooperation with other conventions, international organizations and initiatives; engagement with sub-national and local governments; and engagement of stakeholders and major groups, including business.

In the afternoon and evening, the contact group on resource mobilization and the financial mechanism, co-chaired by Jeremy Eppel, UK, and Francis Ogwal, Uganda, met and considered a second reading of a non-paper. A contact group on improving the efficiency of structures and processes under the Convention, chaired by Tone Solhaug, Norway, and Spencer Thomas, Grenada, was established and considered a first reading of a Chair’s text.
