Manifestations prévues en marge du forum et stands

Les participants peuvent solliciter un espace pour la tenue de manifestations en marge du forum, du 2 au 4 décembre 2013 en adressant au Secrétariat du Forum une proposition (maximum 1-2 pages) indiquant le thème et l’objectif de cette manifestation, sa pertinence en regard du mandat du forum, le nom et les coordonnées du responsable de la proposition. Veuillez noter que l’on ne dispose que d’un nombre limité de salles et de périodes pour de telles manifestations et que les demandes doivent en être faites au plus tard le 1er octobre 2013.

Les décisions concernant les manifestations en marge du forum seront prises en fonction de la disponibilité, de la pertinence du sujet proposé en regard du mandat du forum et de la nécessité d’assurer un certain équilibre entre les diverses parties prenantes. Il appartiendra aux participants qui proposeront de telles manifestations d’en assurer toute la logistique.

Pour faciliter les échanges officieux et promouvoir le dialogue, les participants peuvent demander que leur soit réservé un espace pour dresser des tables ou des stands à l’extérieur des salles de réunion (une sorte de « marché » d’idées et d’informations). Les participants désireux de saisir cette occasion pour présenter des informations, des outils et des matériels pendant le forum sont invités à adresser une demande une fois que leur participation au forum leur aura été confirmée par le Secrétariat du forum. L’allocation d’espace pour des tables ou des stands sera fonction de la disponibilité.

Les demandes concernant les manifestations et stands devront être clairement identifiées comme telles et adressées à : forumbhr@ohchr.org.
