IDPC Side Events

As in previous years, IDPC is planning on organising a series of side events:

Practical information

NGO coordination

There is an NGO lounge where NGOs can meet and work together. This lounge is equipped with a PC, internet connection, Wi-Fi, and a projector for PowerPoint presentations. Every morning at 9:00, the VGNOC will hold an NGO briefing meeting, where information will be provided about the day’s events and NGO activities can be coordinated. This is a useful way to catch up on the latest news and plans for the day. The VNGOC will also make available a list to coordinate the involvement of NGO participants wishing to speak at the Plenary.

Media activities

IDPC published a Media Information Resource Pack last year. The pack provides information and background resources on key issues related to the UN drug control system.
