Eight submissions have been received by the Secretariat, with five submissions from the following parties: Denmark and the European Commission on behalf of the EU and its member States, Gambia on behalf of the least developed countries (LDCs), New Zealand, Nauru on behalf of the Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS), and Ukraine. One submission has been received from an intergovernmental organization, namely the World Bank.
