For the first time the Secretariat is organizing a “Briefing for Newcomers” held jointly for the NGO community and the PNI Network. The briefing is, inter alia, directed at NGO representatives who recently joined VNGOC and/or the Alliance and are not yet familiar with the Vienna-based Commissions. It aims at providing them with information on the follow-up processes to the Kyoto Declaration, the Ministerial Declaration 2019 and the next opportunities for NGOs to engage.
The briefing will
- Provide participants with a brief introduction into the work of the Commissions and an update on the state of the follow-up processes to major conferences conducted by both Commissions
- Show participants the two new eLearning Tools developed by the Secretariat to facilitate the follow-up processes to the 2019 CND Ministerial Declaration and the 2021 Kyoto Declaration
- Inform participants about the plans for the second half of 2022, and
- Provide an opportunity for Q&A on the follow-up processes.
