Item #d89sep4

Participants at the late June 1989 general meeting of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change agreed that reports of the three working groups should be completed by May 1990. This will allow time for formal governmental reviews prior to a final IPCC meeting in September, completing IPCC work in time for presentation at the Second World Climate Conference in November. At the Nairobi meeting, Saudi Arabia presented a report on behalf of several developing countries expressing concern over their IPCC participation, and the need for financial and other assistance to raise concern in their countries and develop competence for dealing with climate change. Another outcome of the meeting was elimination of "core membership," which means IPCC participation is available to all countries and non-governmental organizations on equal footing. This and other IPCC meetings are covered in the latest (August 1989) issue of IPCC News (Mason Charak, NCPO/NOAA, 11400 Rockville Pike, Rockville MD 20852; 301-443-8981). A critical seven-page commentary on the meeting has also been prepared by G.M. Woodwell and K. Ramakrishna of Woods Hole Research Center (POB 296, Woods Hole MA 02543; 508-540-9900). See also Intl. Environ. Rptr., pp. 335-336, July.
