DPI / NGO Briefings 2015
The UN’s Department of Public Information (DPI) conducts (almost) weekly briefings for NGOs. These take place at the UN and are more consistently video-taped so those unable to attend can review the materials.
The briefings cover a variety of topics and often focus on key UN events or meetings about to take place.
DPI – NGO Briefings are very helpful to attend for those new to the UN so they can begin to get a handle on a range of issues, the evolution of agendas, the language, concepts and manner in which the UN works, and so on.
These are more “information out” events, consistent with the mandate of DPI to expand public understanding of the United Nations and its work.
