The IPPC Secretariat has postponed the Expert Meeting on Resource Mobilization from 27th September to 1st of October after consultation with the CPM Bureau. This unfortunate decision was made due to the small number of the nominations and country comments that were received.
This will likely cause some delay in the mobilization of resources for the CPM work programme and will substantially increase the risk of having to reduce the expected work in coming years as we will not have adequate resources. Once again all the member countries are encouraged to mobilize resources for the CPM work programme and the Secretariat welcomes discussions in this regard.The Secretariat meanwhile keep working to mobilize resources, with appropriate input from discussions in coming meetings of SPTA and Bureau in October 2010. After further discussions with the Bureau, the Secretariat may announce another call later for a possible meeting early next year.
