How can SMOs support each other in the context of the COVID-19?
The Inter-Council Network of Provincial and Regional Councils (ICN), Spur Change Program and the Fund for Innovation and Transformation (FIT) invite Canadian Small and Medium-Sized Organizations (SMOs) to join us as an opportunity to share updates on our programming and discuss how we could support each other in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. The objectives of the call are twofold:
1) Programming updates from ICN, Spur and FIT. We will share our experiences as examples of how SMOs are pivoting in regards to the COVID-19 crisis.
2) What are the impacts of the pandemic on SMOs, your partners and programs? We will provide an opportunity to share your specific needs and share ideas on how you are navigating the current situation.
When you register, you will be asked to respond to the following questions prior to joining the call:
1) What are your immediate needs in regards to COVID-19 responses?
2) What information, support, or online training would be helpful right now?
The Inter-Council Network (ICN) is seeking applications for a youth and civil society organization (CSO) delegate to attend the 53rd Commission on Population and Development (CDP53) from March 29th to April 3rd 2020. The session will take place at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City.
The delegates will be part of the official Canadian Delegation (Candel). If you are a youth, and/or represent a civil society organization (CSO), we encourage you to apply for this unique opportunity.
The Commission on Population and Development (CDP)
The CPD is the key UN body responsible for follow-up on the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development’s (ICPD) Cairo Programme of Action.
The United Nations Population Division serves as the Secretariat to the Commission. The CPD is composed of 47 voting members, who are elected for four-year terms reflecting an equitable geographic representation. Canada is a member of the CPD for the 2018-20 term.
An annual session is held in New York, usually every April, to review the implementation of the Programme of Action and to adopt a negotiated outcome resolution, typically centred on a specific theme. The theme of the upcoming 53rd session is: “Population, food security, nutrition and sustainable development”.
The Canadian Delegation
The Canadian delegation (Candel) to the CPD annual session typically consists of Canada’s Permanent or Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN, one officer from Canada’s Permanent Mission to the UN in New York, and two representatives from the Health and Nutrition Strategy and Partnerships Division. In 2020, the delegation seeks to include a youth delegate and a CSO delegate.
All costs for the successful applicants will be covered, including flights, hotels and per diems (reimbursable upon provision of all necessary receipts).
Applicants can only apply as either a CSO delegate, or a youth delegate (not both). There will be one CSO delegate and one youth delegate selected for Candel. Successful delegates must be available for the entire duration of the CPD (March 29-April 3).
