While we have concentrated in Chapter C upon experience gained in specific environmental regimes, in Chapter D upon policy interplay and in Section E 1 upon scientific assessment processes, we now turn to the issue of the appropriate organizational architecture for global environmental policy. Section E 3 will then address the cross-cutting issue of funding. These elaborations are intended to provide an action-oriented contribution in the run-up to the WSSD due in 2002, where the institutional issue will be one of the focal themes.
