The INCD met in Plenary on Monday morning to comment on the report to the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) and begin discussion on awareness building. The Plenary did not meet in the afternoon to allow time for regional groups to meet, followed by another meeting of the heads of regional and interest groups to continue negotiations on the work programme for the interim period.

The Chair, Bo Kjell‚n, opened the meeting by noting that the meeting of heads of regional and interest groups on Friday came close to a final agreement on the programme of work and distribution of tasks of the two working groups. He added that, given the present situation, INCD-6 may be able to conclude its work on Wednesday evening instead of on Thursday morning.
