UN AGENCIES:

UN agencies are expected to assist the Secretariat in the preparatin of a report on current donor activities in SIDS, as called for in A/CONF.167/PC/L.7. Although some agencies shared the criticism addressed to PC/6 and expressed their willingness to pursue intersessional work, it is still unclear how much can be achieved before January, when the report is due. It is still uncertain how and when these efforts will be carried out. The representative of one of these agencies mentioned that software and infrastructure are available but that the will to cooperate may be lacking.
