in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. A national consultation process involving public entities as well as citizens enabled Peru to prepare well-justified modifications to the originally proposed agenda for the meeting. Although initially intended to cover environmental issues within the context of general development issues, during a final meeting in Washington, D.C., the United States, supported by Canada and Chile, proposed a modified agenda for the meeting, in which only specific environmental issues would be addressed. This caused major concerns among developing country representatives, as it was feared that consideration of environmental issues only, isolated from a development perspective, would imply abandonment of the comprehensive approach necessary to achieve truly sustainable development. Eventually, a consensus document was prepared and presented for discussions at the summit.

(1) Developments Involving/Arising Under International Conventions

On 12 January, Suriname ratified the Biodiversity Convention. A second "Gran Krutu" (a meeting of all indigenous and Maroon tribal leaders) was organized in October under International Labour Organisation (ILO) Convention 169 to evaluate progress in the protection of indigenous and local communities rights since the first such meeting in 1995. The tribal leaders adopted a resolution asking the government to implement all international instruments regarding the rights of indigenous and Maroon people to which Suriname is a party. They also requested that the government pay special attention to ILO Convention 169.

At the request of Suriname, a Regional Workshop on the Use of Animal Wildlife was held in Paramaribo, 12-17 February, under the Amazonian Cooperation Treaty (ACT). This event, which was organized within the framework of the "Wildlife Resources" Program of the Special Commission of the Amazon Region on Environment, was attended by representatives of the eight parties to the ACT, as well as of international agencies. The objective was to promote the exchange of information among Amazon Region countries and the discussion of strategies to ensure the sustainable use of Amazon wildlife resources. The conclusions and recommendations adopted by the three working groups of the workshop address the use and conservation of animal wildlife, the current and potential use of medicinal plants, and other uses of wildlife resources. On 21-22 November, again under the auspices of the ACT, the government organized a national workshop within the framework of ACT's "Ecological Economic Zoning and Geographical Monitoring of the Amazon Basin" program.
