INCD-10 HIGHLIGHTS: WEDNESDAY, 8 JANUARY 1997

Delegates to the tenth session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee on Desertification (INCD-10) met in Working Group I to discuss the Global Mechanism, as well as in regional groups. Working Group I met briefly in the morning and for the first ninety minutes of the afternoon in formal session. The latter part of the afternoon was an informal meeting to enable the drafting of a new paragraph 4 (mobilizing financial resources), which is the outstanding text for that issue. Discussion of the Global Mechanism was based on Annex I of decision 9/6 contained in document A/51/76/Add.1.
