The TEC aims to engage a broad range of stakeholders at the international, regional and national levels, including public institutions, the business community, academia and non-governmental organizations, in conducting its work. Stakeholder engagement is issue-based and channeled through work programmes, and the establishment of institutional interfaces and communication channels at different levels, which allows the TEC to mobilize and leverage a wider range of expertise and resources. The TEC interacts with stakeholders through various means, including the meetings of the TEC, thematic dialogues and call for inputs.
The TEC, in performing its functions, draws upon outside expertise, to provide advice, including through inviting representatives of intergovernmental and international organizations, the private sector and civil society to participate in the meetings of the TEC as expert advisers on specific issues under consideration at the meeting. In addition, the meetings of the TEC are open to attendance by accredited observer organizations and observers from Parties. Observers may be invited to address the TEC on matters under consideration by the TEC. More>>
|Call for inputs

The duration of calls for input is decided on a case by case basis and a deadline is provided for submissions related to each call.
