Letter to ECOSOC and the UNODC re: exclusion of NGOs from CND Committee of the Whole

“As representatives of ECOSOC-accredited non-governmental organizations who have attended the Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND), we write to express our concern and discontent with the recent recommendation by the Extended Bureau, relayed by CND secretary Andres Finguerut, that the Committee of the Whole should be a “private” meeting excluding NGOs. This recommendation violates the spirit of NGO inclusion as expressed in CND resolution 49/2 and by former Secretary General Annan’s call for greater engagement of civil society actors. . . .”
