06 Mar Day 2: Voluntary Guidelines Negotiation
Wow. I have lost a significant capacity to see: way to much time was spent straining my eyes to read the big screen where the text was being displayed.
We moved a little faster today but we are still having a night session.
For those following the negotiations, here is where we are at:
Members have adopted:
- 12.10 bis
Friends of the Chair groups have been established for:
- 12.11 bis
and two paragraphs have been deleted:
I am going to `partake in the pizza party provided by the Chair, Dr. Meyers and then try to update this post with some of the adopted text! A friend suggested that the pizza be divided according to the wealth of the attendees’ respective countries. Could be a very interesting exercise. I would get a pretty big slice. But if we opted for distribution by popularity… I think the Canadians would go hungry 🙁 (more on this later)

[…] I posted a rather abstract review of the outcomes of today’s negotiations before running off to grab a slice of pizza (thanks again to the Chair for providing dinner!) You can read that here: http://foodgovernance.com/2012/03/06/day-2-voluntary-guidelines-negotiation/ […]
