31 December 2015: Apply for Moderator Role
13 January 2016: General registration
The General Assembly, in its resolution 67/193 of 20 December 2012, has decided to convene, in early 2016, a special session to review the progress made in the implementation of the Political Declaration and Plan of Action on International Cooperation towards an Integrated and Balanced Strategy to Counter the World Drug Problem, including an assessment of the achievements and challenges in countering the world drug problem, within the framework of the three international drug control conventions and other relevant United Nations instruments.
Furthermore, the General Assembly decided in resolution 69/200, that the special session shall have an inclusive preparatory process that includes extensive substantive consultations, allowing organs, entities and specialized agencies of the United Nations system, relevant international and regional organizations, civil society and other relevant stakeholders to fully contribute to the process, in accordance with relevant rules of procedure and established practice.
To that end, there will be an Informal Interactive Stakeholder Consultation for the United Nations General Assembly Special Session on the World Drug Problem (UNGASS 2016) on 10 February 2016 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. The Consultation is an opportunity for all relevant stakeholders to contribute further to the ongoing preparatory process for UNGASS 2016 by sharing practical expertise and experiences from their work on the ground as an input for consideration by Member States in the negotiations of the outcome document. It presents also an opportunity for stakeholders to prepare for their contributions to the interactive multi-stakeholder round tables at UNGASS.
All organizations wishing to attend the one-day Consultation will need to register by applying here. Applications for general registration for the Consultation are being accepted from 17 December 2015 – 13 January 2016.
The one-day Consultation features an Opening Segment, two interactive-round tables and a closing segment.
Stakeholders are invited to apply to speak at the Consultation, by completing the form available here. Applications will be accepted from 17 – 31 December 2015. The following criteria will be used when selecting speakers:
- Must represent an organization actively working in the drug field and be authorized to speak on behalf of that organization. Priority will be given to organizations working at the grassroots level;
- Gender balance;
- Geographical balance and in the case of equal qualification, representatives from the Global South will be prioritised;
- Thematic balance in terms of approaches to drug policies to represent the broad spectrum and richness of NGO contributions;
- The call is open to ECOSOC and non-ECOSOC accredited NGOs.
A Moderator will facilitate each of the two round tables that are a feature of the Consultation. To be considered for the Moderator role, applicants should be knowledgeable about the subject matter, generally good at including as many voices as possible in the discussion and able to steer the discussion. Please use the form at this link to apply to be a Moderator.
A Selection Committee, comprised of members of the Steering Committee Group of the Civil Society Task Force for UNGASS on Drugs, has been established in order to ensure broad and inclusive participation of stakeholders in the Consultation. To learn more about the Civil Society Task Force, please see the attached document (PDF).
Moderators, speakers and other participants are strongly encouraged to take into consideration the following guiding questions for the discussion:
1. What are the main challenges that exist for implementing a health approach to drugs?
2. Given the recent call for a health approach in drug policy, how should a health focus address the need of the society as a whole, including the marginalized groups and communities, taking into account age and gender perspectives?
3. Acknowledging the links in illicit drug trade, crime, and development policy, what synergies could be created between relevant stakeholders and Member States addressing alternative development, including within the framework of the SDGs?
4. How can Member States and other relevant stakeholders respond effectively to current and emerging threats to health, including hepatitis, HIV/AIDS, untreated pain, and new psychoactive substances (NPS)?
5. How should relevant stakeholders best support Member States to envision and implement inclusive, people-centred and evidence based drug policies and equal access to justice?

Dear Paul L. Quintos,
Greetings from the UNDP Equator Initiative in New York.
We recently launched our global call for nominations for the Equator Prize 2015.
Given your work at IBON International and your focus on sustainable development and natural resource management issues, we thought you might be well positioned to nominate eligible groups or get this into the hands of interested organizations.
The Equator Prize 2015 will honor 20 outstanding local and indigenous community initiatives that are reducing poverty, protecting nature, and strengthening resilience in the face of climate change.
This cycle of the award has the theme empowerment, rights, and partnerships for local climate action and an emphasis on indigenous peoples and local communities that are:
- Protecting, restoring and sustainably managing forests
- Promoting sustainable agriculture and food security
- Advancing community-based adaptation to climate change
- Protecting and securing rights to communal lands, territories and natural resources
- Forging innovative partnerships for sustainable development
Each winning initiative will receive US$ 10,000 and be supported to participate in a series of special events at the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris, France in December 2015.
We hope to appeal for your support in two key areas:
- Nominate communities that are innovating and advancing creative solutions related to climate change and sustainable development
- Circulate this announcement to your partners and contacts, encouraging them to submit nominations and share with their networks
Please find the official announcement attached here in English. It contains all the relevant information on eligibility requirements, selection criteria and how to nominate. Nomination forms and outreach materials are available in 15 different languages here.
Are there groups that are part of your project portfolio whom you think would be strong candidates for the Equator Prize 2015?
A video introducing the Equator Prize is available here, and videos on a few Equator Prize 2014 winners are available here (Ecuador), here(Kenya), and here (Nepal).
Please note that the nomination period for this cycle of the Equator Prize is much shorter than in previous rounds — the nomination deadline is 27 May 2015.
Many thanks in advance for your support. I can imagine you get many requests similar to this every day, so we are truly grateful for whatever attention you are able to bring to this call for nominations.
Very best regards,

Message en français ci-dessous
One of our colleagues from the action/2015 Reference Group has had to step down and we now have an opening for nominations for a woman, representative for Sub-Saharan Africa, to the Reference Group of action/2015.
As a reminder, the Reference Group performs a predominantly advisory role to the campaign Global Hub and Action Teams, providing light touch steer to ensure strategies stay on track. The Reference Group is made up of 14 geographically representative places, with one position for a woman and one for a man from each of region, as well as 3 advisers from networks that are leading on large-scale public engagement work around post 2015 and UNFCC that were not yet represented as part of the elected reference group. The biographies of the current Reference Group members are available online at http://www.action2015.org/
Nominations for new election of woman Reference Group member, representative for Sub-Saharan Africa. If you are a woman from Sub-Saharan Africa and interested to represent the region on the Reference Group, please submit your nomination by 17 April 2015. We have created an online form to collect nominations at http://goo.gl/forms/tf5WbptpvV
Nominations are free and open to anyone registered to the action/2015 campaign. At this stage, we are only accepting nominations from women who are based primarily in Sub-Saharan Africa (i.e. candidates must reside and/or carry out their work in Sub-Saharan Africa) – see note below.
Each registered organization will only be permitted to nominate one individual in the election (i.e. they may not nominate people in multiple regions). Any federated or international NGO will only be eligible to register once.
Note: This position is only opened for women from Sub-Saharan Africa, due to the specific resignation of the woman representative from the region. All other positions are still held by the regional representatives that were elected by the action/2015 coalition in July 2014.
Reference Group election process. The elections will be completed using an anonymous and secure online voting platform. The Global Hub will shepherd the election process. Nominations will close on 17 April 2015. We will then open the online voting/election process to registered campaign participants in Sub-Saharan Africa on 20 April for a period of 10 days. We will close voting on 30 April, for results at the beginning of May. The election will use the first past the post system, which means that the candidate who receives the most votes cast will be elected.
Campaign Registration. We ask that you register as a participant in the campaign as soon as possible (a pre-requisite to nominating and voting). Registration is open and free to any organization that supports the campaign vision (the Istanbul text), and the basic details of participating organizations will be published for others to see on the website. You can register as a participant in the action/2015 campaign here: http://goo.gl/forms/b5mlCo9uTb
If you have any questions or comments regarding this process, please contact Marie L’Hostis, the Global Hub Coordinator of action/2015, at email@example.com.
Message en français
Une de nos collègues du Groupe de Référence d’action/2015 a dû démissionner et nous avons maintenant une position ouverte pour des candidates femmes, représentant l’Afrique Sub-Saharienne, au Groupe de Référence d’action/2015.
Nous vous rappelons que le Groupe de Référence joue essentiellement un rôle de conseiller pour la plateforme mondiale (le «Global Hub») et les équipes d’action, fournissant une orientation peu contraignante pour assurer que les stratégies de la campagne restent sur la bonne voie. Le Groupe de Référence est composé de 14 représentants provenant de sièges géographiquement représentatifs, avec deux places pour une femme et un homme provenant de chaque région, ainsi que trois conseillers de réseaux qui mènent des activités d’engagement du public autour du processus post-215 et de la CCNUCC, qui n’étaient pas encore représentés par les membres élus du Groupe de Référence. Les biographies des membres actuels du Groupe de Référence sont disponibles en ligne à http://www.action2015.org/
Les candidatures pour la nouvelle élection de la représentante féminine du Groupe de référence pour l’Afrique Sub-Saharienne. Si vous êtes une femme en provenance d’Afrique Sub-Saharienne et intéressée à représenter la région au sein du Groupe de référence, s’il vous plaît veuillez soumettre votre candidature avant le 17 Avril 2015. Nous avons créé un formulaire en ligne pour recueillir les candidatures à http://goo.gl/forms/yyLwjkrqvw
Les candidatures sont gratuites et ouvertes à toute personne inscrite à la campagne d’action/2015. En ce moment, nous n’acceptons que les candidatures de femmes qui sont basées principalement en Afrique Sub-Saharienne (c’est-à-dire que les candidates doivent résider et/ou effectuer leur travail en Afrique Sub-Saharienne) – voir la note/remarque ci-dessous.
Chaque organisation inscrite sera autorisée à nommer une seule personne à l’élection (c.-à-d. qu’elles ne peuvent pas nommer des personnes dans plusieurs régions). Toute NGO internationale ou constituée en fédération ne pourra s’inscrire qu’une seule fois en tant qu’une seule et même entité.
Remarque: Ce poste est ouvert seulement pour les femmes de l’Afrique Sub-Saharienne, en raison de la démission spécifique de la représentante féminine de la région. Tous les autres postes sont toujours détenus par les représentants régionaux qui ont été élus par la coalition d’action/2015 en Juillet 2014.
Processus électoral du Groupe de Référence. Pour l’élection/le vote, nous allons utiliser une plate-forme de vote en ligne anonyme et sécurisée. La Plateforme Mondiale (ou ‘Global Hub’) guidera le processus électoral. Les candidatures seront fermées le 17 Avril 2015. Nous allons ensuite ouvrir le processus électoral le 20 Avril aux participants inscrits à la campagne et provenant d’Afrique sub-saharienne, et ceci pour une période de 10 jours. Nous fermerons le vote le 30 Avril, pour des résultats au début du mois de mai. L’élection va utiliser un système de vote uninominal, ce qui veut dire que la candidate qui recevra le plus de votes exprimés sera élue.
Inscription à la Campagne. Nous demandons que vous vous inscriviez à la campagne dès que possible (un prérequis pour votre candidature et futur vote). L’inscription à la campagne est libre et ouverte à toute organisation qui appuie la vision de la campagne (le texte d’Istanbul), et le nom des organisations participants sera ensuite publié sur le site web de la campagne. Vous pouvez vous inscrire en tant que participant à l’action / 2015 campagne ici: http://goo.gl/forms/b5mlCo9uTb
Si vous avez des questions ou des commentaires concernant ce processus, s’il vous plaît veuillez contacter Marie L’Hostis, la Coordinatrice de la Plateforme Mondiale (Global Hub) d’action/2015, à firstname.lastname@example.org.
