The bidding war is on. Canada, Germany, Switzerland and Uruguay are actively campaigning to be selected as the host for the Permanent Secretariat. While Bonn and Geneva may be the front runners, there is clearly no consensus yet. For Canada, Switzerland and Uruguay a decision at INC-11 would be to their advantage. If a decision is postponed until COP-1, Bonn is clearly the favorite. But then, as one delegate pointed out, there is always the possibility that the decision will be postponed by COP-1 and that Geneva could remain the "interim" location for the foreseeable future.
