The Secretariat will have several major tasks during this short, seven-week intersessional period. The main task will be the preparation of the draft text of the regional instrument for Africa, which the Secretariat hopes to complete and distribute by the end of February.

The Secretariat will convene a meeting of the International Panel of Experts on Desertification from 7-9 March 1994 in Geneva, followed by a meeting of the Inter-Agency Group on Desertification. The Experts Panel and the Inter-Agency Group will review the draft of the regional instrument for Africa as well as the revised version of the Convention itself.
