INTERNATIONAL: Each year, the five UN Regional Commissions organize regional preparatory meetings leading up to the High-level Political Forum in July. The meetings will be convened between March and April 2019. The regional platforms usually have a pre-meeting of civil society. It is a space to exchange on our advocacy in the five regions (Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, the Arab region and Africa) and to make the link between the national and global levels. It is also an opportunity to update each other on the regional work done around the yearly forums hosted in each region to prepare Member States to the High-level Political Forum.

Regional meetings will take place:
