Youth and CSO Forums, 13-14 November 2023
Prior to the 7th APPC, a Youth Forum and a CSO Forum will be held at the United Nations Conference Centre in Bangkok and online on 13 and 14 November 2023.
The CSO and Youth Forums are codesigned and implemented by a team of stakeholders led by the 7th APPC CSO Steering Committee, UNESCAP and UNFPA, APRO. CSOs, including youth-led organizations, are integral to the implementation of the 2013 APMD, as well as the ICPD PoA and the ICPD+30 processes in Asia and the Pacific.
The goal of the forums is to facilitate meaningful participation of a diverse group of regional, subregional, national and local level CSOs and youth representatives that work on issues representing the breadth of the population and development agenda in Asia and the Pacific. Organizations that work with marginalized groups on these issues are welcome to attend.
