The Coordinator of the CCW Sponsorship Programme would like to thank delegations that have submitted requests for sponsorship to attend the following CCW meetings to be held from 10 to 14 November 2014:
- Eighth Conference of the High Contracting Parties to Protocol V on Explosive Remnants of War (10 – 11 November 2014);
- Sixteenth Annual Conference of the High Contracting Parties to Amended Protocol II on Prohibitions or Restrictions on the Use of Mines, Booby-Traps and Other Devices (12 November 2014);
- Meeting of the High Contracting Parties to the Convention (13 – 14 November 2014).
However, at this moment the CCW Sponsorship Programme is unable to provide sponsorships for upcoming meetings of the CCW because of a severe lack of funds.
Due to the current financial state, the Programme will unfortunately turn down any voluntary requests submitted by States. We hope that the States Parties which are in a position to contribute to the Programme will soon provide a donation in order to respond positively to future requests for sponsorship.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Coordinator of the Sponsorship Programme or the Implementation Support Unit if you require further information on this matter.
Thank you for your understanding and for your continuing support for the Convention and its Protocols.
