I’m guessing that the office will feel strangely quiet and empty on Monday. Even so it’s good to be back on track and I’m happy to be able to help out with the last-minute preparations.
Besides the usual administrative tasks, such as continued work on different meeting documents and updating the focal point contact list, I have had the opportunity to attend two of the STAC/COP/IGM preparatory meetings. These meetings are held to follow up the status and progress for each area of responsibility in regard of the upcoming meetings of parties. It was very interesting, both times, to see how work is organized and I’m glad that I could attend.
Challenges faced: Dealing with the stress and frustration resulting from problems with the server.
Lessons learned: I have gained a better understanding of how CAR/RCU is organized.
