That’s correct. That’s not how we budget or cost things and changing that is a substantial piece of work with multiple implications that have not yet been thought through and so is not on our work plan.

As the author of the blog piece I will respond. 

The blog post explains - “one-third of the annual cost of the Secretariat and some NOC costs are assigned to each meeting.“
