BARBADOS DECLARATION:

The Conference is expected to have two major outputs: the Programme of Action for the Sustainable Development of Small Island Developing States and the Barbados Declaration. Although the Chair had originally hoped to establish a working group to begin negotiating the text of the Barbados Declaration, this was not realized. The Government of Barbados has expressed its desire to draft the Declaration and it is expected that a draft will be ready to be presented at either the next PrepCom session or at the Conference itself.
