WORKING GROUP I: Working Group I will begin substantive discussion on the structure and nature of commitments. This discussion is expected to last all day. However, as this group is proceeding through its agenda items at a rapid pace, it is possible that the delegates may begin discussion on the next item, national action programmes.
WORKING GROUP II: Working Group II will continue the discussions on transfer of technology and cooperation; research and development; and information, analysis and exchange. If time permits, the group will start work on the institutions section.
