BARBADOS DECLARATION:

The Barbados Mission will be coordinating the drafting of the Barbados Declaration during the next six weeks. Governments reacted positively to the elements paper circulated during the resumed PrepCom, however, many had hoped to see an actual draft of the Declaration. Barbados and other AOSIS members consulted with other governments in the preparation of the elements paper and are expected to continue these consultations while drafting the actual Declaration. Nevertheless, it is expected that negotiations on this document will continue at the Conference itself.
