A document is being circulated, prepared by the Economic and Social Council, asking for comments on the Working Methods of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW).
Is is slotted as Item 3 in the Provisional Agenda of the CSW. Recommendations are included in this report.
NGOs are being asked for comment to this document on the working methods of the CSW, but the time frame is very short. You can send your comments to: Chair@ngocsw.org by January 23rd.
The document is approximately 17 pages long. I found it quite reasonable, but was surprised to find little if any reference to using communication technology, both to spread the availability of the work of the CSW during the meeting of the CSW, as well as sharing the reports and information that is being given at the meetings. As well, there could be a more active on line presence before the meetings for individuals, and possibly NGOs to share their reports and stories on the themes being discussed.
What do you think? Any suggestions to make the process more NGO user friendly?
