UN Commission Calls for CSO Nominations

Kemi Busari

The United Nations Commission on Science and Technology for Development (CSTD) have called on civil societies and individuals in the developed and developing countries to submit names of candidates who will serve as Civil Society representatives on the CSTD Working Group on Enhanced Cooperation.

This call was borne out of the outcome document of the 2005 World Summit on the Information Society in Tunis which contains a call for “enhanced cooperation in the future, to enable governments to carry out their roles and responsibilities in international public policy issues’.

The working group will consist of five Civil Society representatives, one from each UN region to be selected by the Civil Society Coordination Group (CSCG).

Nominees are to consider a service period of 2016-2017 (and eventually the beginning of 2018) and bear in mind the deadline date of 15th March 2016.

Independent Civil Society experts (i.e. those who are not nominated by a civil society network or other community) can also send self-nominations directly to the CSCG nomcom by the same deadline.

Shortlists should be submitted to the CSCG’s nominations committee (nomcom) via the email address nomcom06@internetgov-cs.org.

More information about the working group proposal can be found at:
