States wishing to apply for sponsorship to attend any or all of the meetings are invited to nominate one (1) representative and to submit the following documents to the ATT Secretariat at: firstname.lastname@example.org:

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 the second series of meetings (02-05 April 2019) was 12 February 2019.
Applications received after this deadline will not be considered for the second series of meetings, but may be considered for subsequent meetings, subject to funding availability.
A call for applications for CSP5 (26 - 30 August 2019) will be issued in 2019, subject to funding availability.
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.
