Due to limited space in one Round Table room, number of advisers to representatives of IGOs, NGOs, and business will be contained to one.  Government Delegations can have up to two advisors.

   The Co-Chairs are invited to inspire an interactive dialogue in a most flexible way.  They may make brief introductory remarks to recall major issues and may impose two-minute time limit for an intervention.
