: The INC-D Secretariat will also be dealing with the question of NGO participation in the Conference. Diallo has stated that he will follow UNCED procedures and that NGOs that wish to be accredited to INC-D should send a formal application to the Secretariat with the relevant information indicating what they have been doing in the area of land resources management and specifically in the management of fragile ecosystems. It is probable that the list of NGOs seeking accreditation will be forwarded to the first Plenary session in Nairobi for approval. The Secretariat is actively looking for NGO input into the information session during the first week in Nairobi. For further information about how NGOs can participate in the negotiation process and on related NGO activities, contact Sylvia Jampies at the INC-D Secretariat, POB 80, 1231 Conches, Geneva, Switzerland; tel: (41-22) 789-1676; fax: (41-22) 789-3536.
