THIRD INTERSESSIONAL MEETING:

monday, 26 march 2012

Delegates convened on Monday, 26 March, for the UNCSD’s

The group spent the entire day and evening exchanging further
views and input on the zero draft.

next two days to discussing the zero draft. The EU called for a
streamlining exercise to reduce the size of the text.
