General

The Fourth session of the Committee on Information and Communications, Science, Technology and Innovation will be conducted in a combination of physical and virtual means to take account of travel restrictions brought about by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Bangkok based representatives of members and associate members and invited organizations will be able to attend in person at the United Nations Conference Centre, while capital-based representatives will be able to participate through the KUDO videoconferencing platform.

Given the technical limitations of conducting the Committee session in such a manner and in view of the mandates and operational requirements of the Commission and its subsidiary bodies, participation through KUDO will be prioritized for members and associate members and observer countries of the Commission. A limited number of connections may become available for participating organizations on a first come – first served basis.

Participants will be able to observe the proceedings virtually via YouTube broadcast. Details of the broadcast will be published on the website of the Committee on Information and Communications, Science, Technology and Innovation (CICTSTI), https://www.unescap.org/events/2022/committee-information-and-communications-technology-science-technology-and-innovation.

Observer organizations, intergovernmental organizations, other entities and non-governmental organizations that wish to make statements in connection with any agenda item, may provide these to the secretariat in advance in the form of power-point or plain text, and they will be uploaded to the Committee website as supporting materials. Oral statements and interventions by observers will not be heard during the session.

For delegates who will participate virtually, a test-run of the videoconferencing platform will be arranged in August prior to the Committee, the date and details of the test-run will be communicated to registered delegates directly. The connection of virtual participants will also be tested on the morning of the session, starting 30 minutes prior to the opening. ESCAP technical support will be available to all delegates throughout the session of the Committee. Delegates are requested to provide a phone number at which they can be reached by the technical support team if they lose connectivity during the session.

Delegations are encouraged to prepare brief interventions under each agenda item in response to the items for the consideration of the Committee reflected in each background document, and to engage in interactive discussion on those items. Delegations are asked to limit their interventions to 3 minutes every time they are given the floor. Copies of full statements or speeches may be provided to the secretariat and published on the website of the Committee under the tab ‘presentations and statements’ after the session.
