The nature and organization of work during the period will be decided by the bodies themselves.

Due to space limitations at the UNCC NO delegation office space on a commercial basis is available. Parties and Observer organizations are being advised to make their own logistical arrangements outside the conference premises. For a similar reason, it will not be possible to hold side events and exhibits on this occasion.

The secretariat will be seeking funds to cover the costs of organising the additional sessional period and of full participation by eligible Parties, as these are not reflected in the approved budget.
