|Consultative Status Update
By Maurice Ali
Although I attended the NGO Committee sessions as planned from January 26 to February 4, 2015 the extreme weather and resultant “state of emergency” altered the itinerary. As a result the actually end of the current sessions ended on Friday 13, 2015. That was the reason there was no update until now. As it stands at the moment the application has been deferred until the next meetings in May of 2015.
Above is a copy of the session for consultative status. The entire document can be downloaded here:
The only items of real note for us was the summary and that we were deferred till May on Page: 27.
Also the number of NGO participating in the Q&A sessions is on Page: 33 (item 40).
A more complete and account of the consultative status application in the past meetings will be placed in this post in the next few days along with photos and such of our experiences in New York.
