Recommendations for Zero-Draft of UNGASS Outcome
The Civil Society Task Force for UNGASS 20161 respectfully submits these recommendations and priority areas for inclusion in the UNGASS outcome document. These recommendations are based on a preliminary compilation of the results the Global Civil Society Survey, which was distributed to NGOs all over the world, as well as on prior civil society collaborations including Civil Society Hearings and the Declaration adopted in connection with Beyond 2008.
Other issues considered important by civil society for UNGASS and its preparations, concrete outcome expectations of civil society for UNGASS, and thoughts from civil society on how to define success and the long-term impact of UNGASS 2016, follow the recommendations.
Additional information and recommendations will be finalised after the report on the survey is finalised and the ongoing global regional and thematic consultations are completed and the results consolidated, later in 2015.
