[CCWG-ACCT] Agenda for Paris

Dear Chairs,

I have just seen the proposed agenda for Paris, and I am concerned that
we will be devoting an excessive proportion of the time to the Community
Empowerment side, while leaving insufficient time to address the
extremely important issues on direct accountability, including in
particular IRP improvements.

I see that we don't get to a session on the IRP until the afternoon of
the second day, when only an hour is scheduled, plus a half-hour for
cross-check with CWG requirements.

I both fear that this may not be enough, and also that this structure
will focus consideration of the models excessively on how the deliver
community empowerment and marginalise consideration of their effect on
direct accountability.

I had hoped that the paper analysing Stress Test 23 would be added to
the reading list (see url [1]), which shows potential weaknesses in our
IRP proposal. I would encourage colleagues to read it (or at least look
at the diagram!).

I would like to ask you for the opportunity to present this paper during
the Stress Test session on Friday morning.
