NGO advisories for CSW64


IMPORTANT UPDATE - PLEASE READ

In light of the current concerns regarding coronavirus disease (COVID-19), CSW64 will suspend after one procedural meeting on 9 March. There will be no general discussion and no interactive dialogues. All CSW side events on UN premises and all NGO parallel events have been cancelled. NGOs with valid annual ECOSOC grounds passes will be able to attend the procedural meeting on 9 March. There will be no issuance of CSW grounds passes and CSW64 confirmation letters are no longer applicable. We invite all to view the live webcast of the 9 March meeting at http://webtv.un.org/

We advise organizations to follow the Secretary-General’s strong recommendation that capital-based delegations and other stakeholders refrain from travelling to UN Headquarters.
