Important Update - CR4 Access / MGoS Daily Morning Meeting / VNR Task Group

If you have any HLPF participants within your delegation who have not signed up to the MGoS Coordination Mechanism please encourage them to do so.

You can access the sign up form via the HLPF website (see the orange box):  https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/mgos

Access to Conference Room 4

At the request of the United Nations Department of Safety and Security, access to Conference Room 4 has been simplified. There will not be a ticket system in place to enter the public gallery of Conference Room 4, access to the room will be on a first come first served basis. A member of UN DESA will remain at the entrance to guide all representatives, however you will not need to pick up a ticket in advance. I have attached a revised and updated Information Note to MGoS participants.
