In light of the complex legal issues that could stall negotiations, a seminar on the "Legal Aspects of a Convention to Combat Desertification," scheduled for 10-11 November 1993, increased in significance. This seminar will be convened by the International Academy of the Environment in Geneva.

With an aim towards supporting and facilitating the INCD negotiations, a group of international legal policy experts have been invited to discuss the legal structure of the Convention and annexes with key secretariat staff. The results of the seminar will be made widely available.
