For example, should it be a legal instrument with legally binding and non-legally binding provisions or a voluntary instrument? • Should it take a top-down structure (i.e., common approach required for all countries s) or a bottom-up structure (i.e., common objectives but allowance for flexible approaches to national implementation)?
