Accreditation: UN PoA Meeting of Governmental Experts 9-13 May 2011

The UN Programme of Action Open Ended Meeting of Governmental Experts (MGE) will take place 9-13 May 2011 at the UN Headquarters in New York.

This meeting will seek to generate practical and action-oriented discussions among experts regarding shared implementation challenges and opportunities in the specific area of marking, record-keeping and tracing, and related issues of national and regional frameworks and international assistance. It is an important opportunity for experts on these subjects to focus on addressing practical implementation challenges, rather than policy debates, and to deepen dialogue and share experiences on efforts to implement the Programme of Action at national and regional levels. More information on the MGE can be found at
