IN THE CORRIDORS

Cuba's call for another session of the PrepCom spurred discussion in the corridors. However, with the current constructive atmosphere and the AOSIS/G-77 paper fresh in the hands of delegates, there is a feeling that it is still too early to judge whether or not a second PrepCom will be needed. In fact, many believe that if the Secretariat and the Bureau can develop a negotiating text based on the AOSIS document over the long weekend, the four days of meetings next week may produce agreement on all aspects except for implementation. As the section on implementation was not circulated with the rest of the paper, it is not yet clear how contentious this issue will be.
