CIVIL SOCIETY TASK FORCE FOR UNGASS 2016 - EVALUATION
The CSTF is currently conducting an evaluation to capture the level of satisfaction of civil society at large on the work done by the Civil Society Task Force (CSTF) in the preparatory process of and during the United Nations General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) and its impact on it. We are also interested in your opinion about the future and the role the CSTF could eventually play in view of 2019, i.e. the final review of the 2009 Political Declaration and Plan of Action on International Cooperation towards an Integrated and Balanced Strategy to Counter the World Drug Problem.
The survey is available at http://goo.gl/forms/Dzl556eXEw7kFuLS2 and the estimated time to complete it is 10 minutes.
The submission deadline has been extended until midnight on 30 June 2016.
