UN DESA will provide travel support and daily subsistence allowance (DSA) to a limited number of representatives of Major Groups and other Stakeholders who are nationals of developing countries to attend the HLPF. Nominations for travel funding support should be submitted no later than midnight (NY time) on Wednesday, 29 May 2019.
Nominations can be submitted by individual organizations, MGoS and national SDG/2030 Agenda platforms or similar. Collective nominations (MGoS and/or national platforms) will have greater weight in the selection process over individual nominations. Self-nominations, while still possible, will have less weight than those nominees put forward by a third party.
The following MGoS constituencies will conduct their own internal processes, in accordance to their respective governance procedures, in order to identify their most qualified candidates to be submitted for consideration: NGO MG, Women’s MG, MG Children and Youth, Workers and Trade Unions MG, Local Authorities MG, Indigenous Peoples MG, SG on Ageing, Persons with Disabilities SG, Volunteers SG, Sendai Stakeholder Engagement Mechanism, Civil Society FfD Group, Education and Academia SG, Asia Pacific Regional CSO Engagement Mechanism, and Together 2030. Interested candidates belonging to these MGoS are invited to transmit their expression of interest to their respective constituencies in accordance to the detailed procedures that each constituency is currently devising for its associates.
