This year, the Secretariat was assisted in compiling member comments by volunteers from COSAVE, Germany, Malaysia, the Philippines, the UK, Australia and Zambia. The Secretariat appreciates the valuable contribution that these volunteers have made to the work programme of the IPPC.
Each year, the IPPC Secretariat is faced with the tremendous task of compiling thousands of member comments in a short space of time and with a limited staff. To help carry some of this burden, five NPPOs (Australia, Germany, Malaysia, Philippines, United Kingdom, and Zambia) and one RPPO (COSAVE) volunteered to assist in the compilation of member comments. This contribution has helped immensely and has helped to ensure that the comments received from over 50 different NPPOs, RPPOs and other relevant international organizations are compiled accurately and in a timely fashion.
