The Government of Barbados is working
on the draft of the Barbados Declaration, which will be adopted at
the Conference. Barbados is expected to present a draft text for
the declaration or a paper containing elements to be included in
the declaration at the resumed session of the PrepCom in March.
Formal negotiations on the Declaration are set to begin at that
time. It is likely that the Government of Barbados will look at
both the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development and the
AOSIS Heads of Government Declaration (10 June 1992) for elements
to be included in the Barbados Declaration.
