THINGS TO LOOK FOR IN THE INTERSESSIONAL PERIOD

INTERGOVERNMENTAL CONSULTATIONS: Informal consultations within two main caucus groups, the Like-Minded coastal States group and the DWFN group, are expected to continue throughout the intersessional period in preparation for harmonization of the Chair's revised text at the final substantive session. Look for increasing US activity to broker agreement over remaining obstacles between the two groups.

NGO ACTIVITIES: NGOs are expected to continue in their consultations with the FAO, especially on the Code of Conduct, during the intersessional period. Look for notification of one more NGO round table before the final session of the Conference.
