The following documents have been prepared for the fourth session
of the INCD:
- A/AC.241/18: Provisional Agenda. This document contains the provisional agenda for the fourth session of the INCD, as adopted by the Committee at its third session. The provisional work programme for the next two weeks is also included.
- A/AC.241/19: Negotiating Text of a Regional Implementation Annex for Africa. This document was prepared by the Secretariat on the basis of document A/AC.241/17 and comments received during the third session of the INCD. This document will be the basis for negotiation of the African Annex in Working Group II.
- A/AC.241/20: Review of the situation as regards extrabudgetary funds. This document updates the status of the two funds established for the INCD: the Voluntary Fund to support the participation of developing countries affected by drought and desertification, and the Trust Fund for the negotiating process.
- A/AC.241/15/Rev.1: Revised Negotiating Text of the Convention. This document, which was preliminarily distributed at the conclusion of the third session of the INCD, will be the basis for negotiations in both working groups during the next two weeks.
