CoP-11 advance information session

30 October 2020

Online meeting

The CoP-11 advance information session is being organized as a virtual meeting on 30 October 2020, 9:30–12:30, with English and Russian interpretation, via the platform “Kudo”.

The session aims to prepare delegations for participating in the eleventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties, which will be a hybrid meeting in Geneva from 7–9 December 2020, with three 2-hour morning sessions (10:00–12:00), under the extraordinary circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic. The advance information session will be organized to brief Parties about the content of CoP-11 as well as the practical and procedural arrangements and conduct of the significantly shortened, hybrid meeting, including arrangements for remote and in-person participation. It will provide an opportunity to clarify any questions related to the meeting organization, on substantive, procedural and practical matters.

The session will also provide information and time for discussion of selected items of the Annotated provisional agenda for the eleventh meeting (ECE/CP.TEIA/41) and the draft decisions and documents, which CoP-11 is invited to adopt or endorse.

A flyer of the event is available in English and Russian.

All delegates intending to participate in CoP-11, whether remotely or in-person, are invited to the advance information session. This includes delegates from the Geneva-based Permanent Missions when they will represent countries in person.

More information about the eleventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties (CoP-11), incl. its agenda and all official documents, are available on the CoP-11 webpage.
