The overall objective of this workshop is to strengthen the participants’ capacity to contribute to the implementation of the Review Mechanism of the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime (UNTOC) in line with Resolution 9/1 and launched through Resolution 10/1 of the 10th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP). The aim of the workshop is to prepare participants to contribute to the general review during COP; the country review at the national level, and constructive dialogue between government focal points in the margins of the Working Group meetings, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), and other stakeholders. UNODC is committed to support Member States in the Review Mechanism and to prepare non-governmental stakeholders for constructive and meaningful contribution during the review process.
This training will prioritize Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), academics and private sector representatives from countries under review in group one (according to the results of the drawing of the lots). Participants from other countries are also welcome.
The objective of this workshop is four-fold:
This training will be held in virtual format in a synchronous mode that will involve live plenaries, interactions among participants in breakout groups, and Q&A sessions. The virtual part of the training will be conducted using Microsoft Teams which allow instant communication, including video conferencing, live chat and breakout groups. Depending on circumstances, this part of the training may take place in a hybrid mode, meaning that some participants may be present in-person in line with local government’s measures for COVID-19. The exact format of the training will be communicated to selected participants.
The training will be based on COP UNTOC Resolution 10/1 and UNODC Toolkit on Stakeholder Engagement: Implementing the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime.
