The plan lists twenty-three decisions that have to be made and the issues that need to be resolved in coming to those decisions. It speci¢es that the rules of implementation (on the £exible mechanisms) will have to be drawn up in time for COP6 (in all likelihood by late 2000 or early 2001). The ¢gure is a fairly arbitrary one with little indication of the plausibility of resolving all the issues by that date (Global Market Review 1998). Given the short time span in which all these important issues will have to be discussed, it is expected that much of the business outlined in the action plan will have to be conducted during high-level informal consultations and not con¢ned to the meetings of the COP or its subsidiary bodies.

Nevertheless, the discussion in each chapter of the structural factors and bargaining assets of each actor explores this interrelationship where bargaining assets ¢t more closely with the way in which these writers de¢ne in£uence and structural factors resonate with their notion of power.
