IN THE CORRIDORS

NGO participants were pleased that the G-77 and China draft proposal for the GM contained many of the suggestions they presented in ECO last week. They also were encouraged by the fact that the conference room paper on benchmarks and indicators was generally supported and incorporated into the work of Working Group II on procedures for the communication of information. Although a few NGOs have taken the floor during negotiations, most report that they have worked through private contacts with delegates and, based on Monday’s developments on the GM and indicators texts, their work appears to have had an impact on INCD-9.
