PLENARY: The Plenary is expected to meet briefly at noon to hear statements from the Minister of the Environment of Tunisia and the President of IFAD.
OTHER MEETINGS: There is a slight possibility that an informal meeting of the Plenary will be held this afternoon to review the texts of the Convention and the regional annexes. However, if consultations on the outstanding issues are still underway, this meeting may prove to be the dream of optimists. There may be a meeting called to formally adopt Articles 13, 14 and 18 of the Regional Impelmentation Annex for Africa. Check the Journal and the television monitors for more information on meetings that may occur throughout the day.
NGO ACTIVITIES: During this week, NGOs have been preparing a document that would create a network for future NGO cooperation. This document is expected to be completed and, possibly, circulated during the day.
