Inscribe to the list of Speakers at the General Debate and make a request to intervene at the Roundtable discussions during the 11th session of the Conference of States Parties
For all requesting for speaking opportunities at the General Debate and make a request to intervene at the Roundtable discussions, written inscriptions must be made by submitting a filled form ( click the form to insert here) and may be granted opportunities by the Bureau.
Each NGO representative granted an opportunity shall speak for a maximum of 3 minutes (approx. 500 words). The time limit will be strictly enforced.
The following criteria and considerations will be taken account for the inclusion of the inscriptions or requests duly lodged :
a) Adherence and relevance to the theme of the Conference, and focus on ôLeaving no one behind through the full implementation of the CRPDö or the themes of the three roundtable discussions
b) NGOs speaking on behalf of a group, network or committee;
c) Representation of a balance of regional groups.
To avoid potential missing of the speaking opportunities, all speakers are strongly suggested to make themselves available at the venue and may also notify Secretariat staffs on site, ideally at least 30 minutes in advance of the approximate time slot allocated for them.
The deadline for submission is: 4 June 2018, 5.00 PM NY time.
No requests lodged after the deadline will be accommodated. And there are no guarantees that all submitted requests will be given the opportunity to speak during the Conference.
