DRAFTING THE FORMAT OF THE CONVENTION

: Based on the contributions of the panel of experts, the results of the Chair's intersessional consultations, and the drafts prepared by the inter-agency working party, the Secretariat may begin to put together a draft format for the convention. This document, which may be presented at the first substantive session in Nairobi, will probably incorporate ideas from previous conventions and submissions from governments, such as the 40-page draft convention prepared by Algeria and the Egyptian position paper currently in circulation.
