PLENARY: Discussion will begin this morning on Agenda Item 7 and documents E/CN.17/1993/11 and Add. 1, addressing financial commitments, financial flows and arrangements for the implementation of Agenda 21.
THE WORKING GROUPS: Look for an announcement today on the Chairs of the two working groups. Indications yesterday were that Ghazi Jomaa of Tunisia would take responsibility for Working Group I, which will deal with the multi-year programme of work, issues relating to the future work of the CSD and national reporting. Arthur Campeau of Canada will probably chair Working Group II discussions on technology transfer, financial commitments, flows and arrangements, and progress in the incorporation of UNCED recommendations in the activities of international organizations. If the room and interpreters are available, one working group at a time will meet concurrently with the Plenary beginning Thursday.
