Right to Development

DEVELOPMENT IS A HUMAN RIGHT FOR ALL


Sixth session of the high-level task force on the implementation of the right to development, 14-22 January 2010, room XXI, Palais des Nations, Geneva

The sixth session of the task force will focus on the implementation of the recommendations of the Working Group on the Right to Development, endorsed by the Human Rights Council in resolution 12/23.

As part of the process of refining the right to development criteria, the task force will continue its mandated work in relation to Millennium Development Goal 8, target E on access to essential medicines, target F on technology transfer and targets B and D on debt relief. The task force will also consolidate its findings, consider a revised list of right-to-development criteria along with corresponding operational sub-criteria and formulate suggestions for further work. The outcome of the session will be submitted for consideration by the Working Group at its next session scheduled for April 2010.

In addition to its institutional members - the World Bank, IMF, WTO, UNDP, UNCTAD and UNESCO, the institutions responsible for relevant global partnerships have been invited to the meeting. Member States and non-governmental organisations have also been also invited to participate as observers in the public segment of the session.

Please see the provisional programme of work for details.

The deadline for registration for this session of the task force is 12 January 2010.
