POPRC.16 Pre-meetings

Pre-meetings were held from 1 to 3 December 2020 in English only, from 11.30 a.m. to 3 p.m. (UTC+1).

The pre-meetings provided an early opportunity to introduce and discuss the technical work (item 4 of the provisional agenda) with the aim of facilitating the Committee’s work at the meeting by providing adequate opportunity to address key issues within an online format, and access and consider with sufficient time information relevant to the technical work before the Committee.

The pre-meetings focused on the technical work rather than considering other items under the agenda for the online meeting. Participants to the pre-meetings were registered to the POPRC-16 meeting. Participants were encouraged to actively participate in the pre-meetings so as to ensure a full and rich exchange in relation to the technical work to be completed.
