Delegates initially exchanged ideas on possible content, formulation, and style for the eventual declaration, building off a document circulated by the post-2015 process Co-Facilitators earlier this month. A second document was then introduced last Thursday in an effort to capture the meeting’s initial discussion.
Last week’s talks reportedly focused on the opportunity offered by the declaration section to effectively communicate what will likely be a complex and lengthy post-2015 development agenda. However, differences emerged on the type of language to use, according to ENB reporting. In other words, some delegates support using fresh language, while others favour previously agreed terminology.
