During the meeting of decision-making bodies, the delegate should be prepared to report to the rest of the delegation, clearly and concisely, on any developments arising from discussions held at Regional Coordination, Committees, Working Groups or in the margins. The delegate should therefore take detailed notes, particularly on negotiating text changes. Having detailed information on what happened, will help the delegate verify the accuracy of the next version and of the final meeting report. Also, noting which delegations and regions had particular perspectives in support or opposition to the delegate’s own position will enable help in effectively targeting delegations that have to be won over or that could offer support. A great deal of important work can be done without being physically present at the meeting.
