ically analyze the COP's operations. As a first step in the process, the decision invites parties to submit their views on improving COP operations, the 1995-97 work programme's review, and the possibilities for a longer term work programme. The simple fact that the parties realize everything cannot be undertaken at once is cause for cautious optimism that a reasoned, well- thought- out long-term work programme for the next millennium can be developed in 1998 and implemented. The fourth meeting of the Conference of the Parties is scheduled for 4-15 May 1998 in Bratislava, Slovakia.
