Absolutely agree with Carlton. In the first round, it was so very clear that very few applicants outside of the developed world, in fact outside of the US, were a clear sign that the few measures ALAC managed to get had not worked and one of ALAC’s cries was for a review on why there were to few applicants for the developing world.  So find time (I will) to go through this to see what should be improved for the second round

But speaking directly to those of us from developing economies and informed by my experience as Co-Chair of the Applicant Support Working Group in the last round, I urge you read closely the details of matters raised in:

> 4.2.5  - Applicant Guide Book (AGB)
> 4.2.6  - Clarity of Application Process
