implementation of Agenda 21

115. At its 8th plenary meeting, 7 February 1997, the Governing Council decided to hold a special session, from 12 to 14 November 1997, to review reports to be completed by the secretariat, as well as the results and decisions of the General Assembly at its special session for an overall review and appraisal of the implementation of Agenda 21.

116. However, at its 10th plenary meeting, on 4 April 1997, the Governing Council decided, in order to allow the secretariat sufficient time to complete the tasks assigned to it at the nineteenth session of the Council, that dates of the special session should not be fixed as yet but that it should be held over a three-day period between late 1997 and the end of January 1998. It was further decided that the secretariat should provide appropriate advance notification of the exact dates, once determined, and distribute the required documentation in accordance with established procedures.
