The delegates include representatives from the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Planning and Investment, Finance, Industry and Trade, Agriculture and Rural Development, Resource and Environment.

The COP 13 and CMP 3 aim to offer a specific schedule for dialogues on a new agreement replacing the Kyoto Protocol which will expire in 2012. A new roadmap will be also designed to obtain a consensus on greenhouse gas reduction by 2009.
