NORTHERN MEDITERRANEAN PREPARATIONS:

At the conclusion of INCD-4, Greece, Spain, Portugal and Italy informally circulated a draft Regional Implementation Annex for the Northern Mediterranean. It is not clear whether this annex will be negotiated and adopted in June, or whether the Committee will decide to focus on the other three annexes and defer this one, which involves developed countries, to the Conference of the Parties. Look for these four countries to hold further consultations on their regional annex during the intersessional period.
