: The INC-D Secretariat will also be
dealing with the question of NGO participation in the Conference.
Diallo has stated that he will follow UNCED procedures and that
NGOs that wish to be accredited to INC-D should send a formal
application to the Secretariat with the relevant information
indicating what they have been doing in the area of land resources
management and specifically in the management of fragile
ecosystems. It is probable that the list of NGOs seeking
accreditation will be forwarded to the first Plenary session in
Nairobi for approval. The Secretariat is actively looking for NGO
input into the information session during the first week in
Nairobi. For further information about how NGOs can participate in
the negotiation process and on related NGO activities, contact
Sylvia Jampies at the INC-D Secretariat, POB 80, 1231 Conches,
Geneva, Switzerland; tel: (41-22) 789-1676; fax: (41-22) 789-3536.
