OAU EXPERT GROUP MEETING TO PREPARE FOR INCD-3:

The OAU Expert Group will meet in Algiers from 11-13 January. Assistance in the organization of this meeting will be provided by the INCD Secretariat. The meeting will be coordinated by the OAU with support from the Joint Secretariat Organizations (UNEP, UNDP/UNSO, ECA, ADB). The objectives of this meeting are to review the recommendations and proposals coming from the meeting of the ad-hoc expert working group and formulate Africa's contribution to the third session of the INCD. The experts will also review the results of the African Development Bank-sponsored meeting from 20-23 December 1993 in Nairobi on the financial resources and mechanisms needed for funding the Desertification Convention, particularly as it may relate to the financing of the implementation of the African instrument.
