BWC Action - Contribution to BWC Sponsorship Programme
The BWC Action includes sponsorship for participation of experts from a maximum of ten developing countries in the meetings of the BWC intersessional programme; 2-3 sponsorships will be available for each meeting (BWC Meetings of Experts and BWC Meetings of States Parties).
Requests for sponsorship should be sent from the Permanent Mission or the relevant Ministry of requesting State.
The requests should be sent to the BWC Implementation Support Unit (ISU) and will be processed in accordance with the decisions of the Seventh Review Conference on the sponsorship programme.
The BWC ISU needs to receive the requests by the latest 1 month before the meeting (for which sponsorship is requested) takes place, in order to be able to make necessary travel arrangements.
