2021 Forum Information

The 9th Forum will be the second Forum occurring online due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has provided an opportunity to democratize and rethink the format and agenda for 2021. In order to allow for increased participation and access, especially amongst regional organizations, the Forum will no longer be only one convening.

Instead, five online regional forums will be held throughout 2021:

Africa, July 6-8, 2021

South and Southeast Asia, August 10-12, 2021

Latin America, September 21-23, 2021

Middle East and North Africa (MENA), October 2021

North America, the Caribbean, and Europe, November 2021
