Each of you, in your individual role as Minister of Foreign Affairs, Environment, or Trade, is responsible to produce for your country teammates an overview/description of the issues in your area of expertise that will provide background on what you need to know to make good decisions in the negotiations. This short paper should consist essentially of two main parts: a ‘road map’ or overview of crucial issues and context in your country in your Ministry’s area, and preliminary analysis/comments on your own concerns and priorities for participating in the negotiations. What is most important is that you give your teammates a sense of what you consider to be the most important issues to discuss, and why. This means that your analysis of current issues is important, and that your paper cannot just list issues/problems but must address why and how they are important.
