THINGS TO LOOK FOR TODAY

PLENARY: The Conference will resume at 10:00 am in Conference Room 2. Satya Nandan is expected to ask for comments on his revised negotiating text (A/CONF.164/13/Rev.1) on a section-by-section basis.

IN THE CORRIDORS: A number of delegates are increasingly promoting the concept of biological unity coined during the March technical Working Groups. Look for reference to the FAO's Precautionary Approach Paper (A/CONF.164/INF/8) and the Reference Points for Fisheries Management Paper (A/CONF.164/INF/9). Also, look for another new management concept based on "Marine Protected Areas", to be introduced by NGOs during consideration of the Chair's negotiating text.
