Numerous brackets still remain in the Programme of Action for the Sustainable Development of Small Island Developing States, especially in the preamble and Chapter XV. If the Conference is to successfully adopt this action programme, delegates will need to consult informally during the next six weeks to see if they can find acceptable language for the paragraphs on financial resources, institutional arrangements, and implementation. Look for members of AOSIS to meet among themselves and with other delegates from both the OECD countries and the rest of the G-77 to see if they can reach some provisional agreements that can be presented to the Conference in Barbados.
