Consultations on the resolution will be conducted virtually and/or through correspondence prior to UNFF 16. The UNFF 16 provisional organisation of work is available here.

The virtual informal meetings of the UNFF will be held on the remote simultaneous interpretation platform “Interprefy”. The virtual meetings will have interpretation in the 6 official UN languages. The deliberations will also be broadcast on UN Web TV at http://webtv.un.org/
