Dear CLAs/LAs

I just thought I would send you a quick note to outline the Agenda for the
Arusha meeting and what you should be thinking of doing by way of
preparation between now and then.

Firstly, any of you who have not yet booked your hotel and made your travel
arrangements should do so without delay.

The draft Agenda for the Arusha meeting is attached and copied below,
although we will remain flexible and will adjust it as necessary to deal
with any issues as they arise. The main aim of the meeting is for each
chapter team to work at revising their drafts so that they will be ready to
deliver a first draft to me by 1 October. In particular having all the
chapters together will allow us to tackle omissions and overlaps more
easily. We will also be considering any cross-cutting issues between
chapters, such as how to deal with uncertainties. One of the things you
should do before you come to Arusha is to read the Uncertainties guidance
paper prepared by Richard Moss and Steve Schneider if you have not already
done so.

You will notice from the Agenda that a CLA from each of the chapters will be
expected to make a short presentation on the first morning. I thought it
might be helpful to give a few ideas about what that presentation might
contain. The presentation should outline the scope of the chapter and give
an update on progress, including any outstanding issues that remain to be
resolved. In addition, I think it would be useful if you could also
highlight what you think the (1 � 5) most important new (since SAR)
scientific findings are in your chapter, and why. Also what you think the (1
� 5) most important current messages or overall findings are going to be
from your chapter. These will be particularly helpful to the Technical
Summary team as it begins its work to distill the chapters and will also be
useful to you as Lead Author teams to ensure that your chapters are indeed
bringing out these key messages and new findings. Another important way of
doing this is through the Executive Summaries for your chapters. It would
also be very helpful therefore if all chapters could have at least a zero
order Executive Summary by the time of the Arusha meeting.

Thank you all for your continuing hard work and I look forward to meeting
you again in Arusha.
