Since the meeting’s start Monday morning, each agenda item has been discussed in plenary with parties providing their comments on the official document. To date, negotiations have been fairly uncontroversial and the process has been smooth. Only one official document has been relegated to a Friends of the Chair group (Sustainable wildlife management).
