X. NATIONAL INSTITUTIONS AND ADMINISTRATIVE CAPACITY:
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.
