Note on COVID-19: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting initially scheduled for 23-25 March 2020 in Rio de Janeiro was postponed. On 15 October 2020, the secretariat advised national focal points that it was actively monitoring the situation and would, if necessary, explore and propose holding the meeting virtually or in other possible formats to ensure the necessary institutional and implementation decisions for the Programme can be taken by national focal points. On 8 December 2020, the secretariat informed participants that it planned to organize and facilitate the First Global Meeting in ‘two segments’, first virtual, followed by an in-person resumed session.
