NGO ACTIVITIES:

There are numerous national and regional organizing efforts underway around the world in preparation for PrepCom III and the Cairo Conference. The NGO Planning Committee is putting together a series of programmes to be held during PrepCom III. Any NGO that wishes to present or develop a programme should contact the NGO Planning Committee. The Planning Committee is also preparing to distribute the draft text of the Cairo Document when it becomes available and is urging NGOs to prepare their lobbying efforts with this document in hand. NGOs that will not be able to attend PrepCom III are urged to mail in their comments to the NGO Secretariat or to share them with local colleagues who will be in New York. NGOs participating in national organizing efforts surrounding the ICPD are urged to coordinate responses and lobbying efforts for PrepCom III.
