X. NATIONAL INSTITUTIONS AND ADMINISTRATIVE CAPACITY:

This chapter addresses the need to integrate environmental concerns into national institutional and administrative arrangements, specifically in terms of economic and development planning. Many of the action points concern regional and international support for capacity building, once national priorities have been established. Issues discussed in greater detail included the extent to which the chapter should refer to all levels of government in the national context and the need to involve the public in decision making processes. The delegates were able to agree on compromise text on these two issues.
