29th Meeting of the Ramsar Standing Committee -- Agenda papers

20/02/2003
29th Meeting of the Ramsar Standing Committee
Gland, Switzerland, 26-28 February 2003
Agenda item 10.1

DOC. SC29-9, Rev. 1

Revised Estimated Income and Expenditure for fiscal year 2002

1. As a result of the preparation of the report on Bureau expenditures related to COP8 (DOC. SC29-9 add.1), it was established that a considerable amount of expenditure related to COP8 had erroneously been charged to the core budget. This led to an overall revision of the expenditure charged to core in the report prepared at 25 January 2003 and distributed for the 29th Meeting of the Standing Committee.

2. Attached is a revised report, showing where the adjustments have been made. All expenditures removed from core budget have been charged to projects, in particular to the COP8 project.
