The documents for the meeting will be made available on the meeting web page[ IWC Conservation Committee - Intersessional 2020]
Zoom sessions will be 2 hours in length. There will usually be one Zoom session per day only to allow the best scheduling for differences in time zones.
On Zoom sessions, the usual format for observer participation will be followed (Contracting Governments will be invited to speak first on an agenda item, followed by observers) but the Chair/Vice Chair will ensure that sufficient time is made available for observer interventions so may set a time limit for all individual interventions if necessary.
Guidance on Zoom will be circulated to all participants in advance of the meeting and Zoom etiquette can be found at the bottom of this page. Download Zoom
As indicated on the agenda some items will be dealt with by email discussion only. Emails will be sent out to all of those registered to attend the meeting and a form provided for comments. At the conclusion of the time allocated for comments, the convenor of the discussion will send a summary of the discussion and a proposed way forward.
The draft report will be circulated by close Sunday 30th for agreement by correspondence. A further Zoom session may be scheduled in on Tuesday 6 October if there are unresolved issues from the report which require further discussion.
Please be aware that the timetable is provisional and could be subject to change, as such please regularly check here for updates.
Registration is now closed. Anyone who still wishes to register should contact Secretariat@iwc.int
