Re: [council] Please make comments on

thank you for your response.

ms rony's letter is does not necessarily represent any concensus position
and her comments are by no means necessarily accurate with respect to WG-B.

with respect to the position taken by the council on wg-c.... the board does
not operate in a vacuum here... they all have had the opportunity to avail
themselves of the wg-c report. the report was tendered to the council and we
reviewed both the report and the public comments. after significant
deliberation and discussion we were virtually unanimous with our opinions &
sucggestions to the board.

it is my understanding that the BOARD and only the board sets policy here.
that the function of the council is to provide advice and suggested
direction to the board which it may either elect to modify, accept in its
entirety or reject.  we did just that...

i too share your concern regarding the budget process but very frankly, i
have not heard any concrete proposal's from your constituancy (i assume that
the NCDNH is who you refer to) on how you would propose to deal with this
issue specifically.

i would hope that you would have something forthcoming to the secretariat in
the very near future

i too share the concern of the "developing" countries and feel that a
methodology needs to be worked out to assist them & provide assistance . the
"quiteness" i see from many of these countries appears in some cases to come
from differing cultural perspectives in how to deal with this process. we
need to be more sensitive to these perspectives.
