1996 PROGRAMME OF WORK

The Commission conducted its substantive work in general debate, panels, drafting groups and contact groups. Panels were convened during the early days of the session on the subjects of education, finance and transportation. The drafting groups began their work in earnest at the end of the first full week, and went on to overlap with the High-Level Segment. A contact group on oceans was convened several times during the first week by Ad Hoc Intersessional Working Group Chair Svante Bodin (Sweden) to address unresolved issues from that session. Additional contact groups were used during the second full week to facilitate consideration of all draft decisions. Drafting Groups I, II and III were chaired by Bureau members Enrique Provencio, Daudi Ngelautwa Mwakawago, and Paul de Jongh, respectively.
