A limited sponsorship programme is available for States wishing to attend the Fifth Conference of States Parties (CSP5) to the ATT, which is scheduled to take place in Geneva, Switzerland from 26-30 August 2019. The official Call for Applications from the Head of the ATT Secretariat is available here.
States wishing to apply for sponsorship to attend CSP5 are invited to nominate one (1) representative and to submit the following documents to the ATT Secretariat at: firstname.lastname@example.org:
Note Verbale signed by the relevant Government institution nominating the representative for sponsorship and indicating which meeting(s) the State wishes to attend;
Application form completed by the nominated representative (available here);
Copy of the applicant’s passport; and
Copy of applicant’s health insurance policy (if applicant has one).
The deadline for applications for CSP5 (26-30 August 2019) was 03 June 2019.
Applications received after this deadline will not be considered.
Please note that if you/your State has already applied for funding to attend CSP5, and this application was acknowledged by the ATT Secretariat, you do not need to resubmit your application for sponsorship.
It is brought to the attention of States that the process to raise funds from donors to support the sponsorship programme is currently underway and as such no definite budget exists yet for the sponsorship programme. In view of this, the number of delegates to be sponsored to participate in any of the planned ATT meetings will be subject to the availability of funds.
