UNCCD COP 9

On Saturday morning, AWG-LCA 9 convened an informal plenary to exchange views on the Chair's draft conclusions on organization and methods of work in 2010. Discussions focused, inter alia, on whether to mandate the Chair to develop a new draft negotiating text for the AWG-LCA's next meeting in June and whether to base it on the AWG-LCA's report to COP 15 or reflect work done in Copenhagen more broadly. In the afternoon, the Chair circulated revised draft conclusions and the informal plenary reconvened to exchange views on them.
