THINGS TO LOOK FOR TODAY

WORKING GROUP I: Discussion should be more specific today as delegates begin to address the draft texts circulated by the Chair on Thursday afternoon. This morning's meeting will not begin until 10:30 to allow the G-77 time to meet. The Chair's draft text on finance is expected to be discussed first, followed by the draft texts on major groups and decision- making structures. Look for draft texts on trade and environment, production and consumption patterns and technology transfer.

WORKING GROUP II: Working Group II will begin discussion this morning with the Chair's draft text on human health and sustainable human settlements. The Chair of Working Group II asked delegates to identify weak points in the text so that it can be revised. Look for the draft texts on freshwater resources, toxic chemicals and hazardous wastes.
