- Due to lack of funds, the 9 MSP was shortened to two days with translation in all six official languages. Consequently, in order to be able to cover the rich agenda of the Meeting while making full use of the limited translation services, the Secretariat encourages all delegations to consider limiting their interventions to 4 minutes per delegation.
