On Wednesday morning, GC26/GMEF delegates convened in ministerial consultations and the Committee of the Whole (COW). The morning plenary focused on International Environmental Governance, the theme that also continued in the afternoon at four parallel ministerial roundtable discussions. The COW discussed coordination and cooperation within the United Nations system on environmental matters, and with major groups. It also reviewed the follow-up to, and implementation of, the outcomes of United Nations summits and major intergovernmental meetings. Contact groups on Budget and Programme of Work for 2012-2013, chemicals management, and drafting also met throughout the day.
