The Chair of the ICCBD, Amb. Vincente S nchez opened the discussion of agenda item 4.1.1, Rules of Procedure, contained in document UNEP/CBD/IC/2/3. The Plenary moved quickly through the remaining rules, 26 to 57. These addressed subsidiary bodies, the Secretariat, conduct of business, voting, languages, amendments to the rules of procedure, and the overriding authority of the Convention. While a few States repeated views that were already included in the text, no new interventions were made. S nchez then clarified that the COP's involvement in the 1995 session of the CSD would not require the preparation of reports, because UNEP has been appointed as task manager. This would also ensure coordination among UN agencies working on biodiversity and the CBD.
