In this discussion, participants to the Open-ended Group and AHTEG are invited to share their experiences and views on an ongoing exercise to test the overall utility and applicability of the draft revised Guidance
(15 September 2011).
In their feedback, participants may:
- Provide comments on the testing results already submitted (available here); and
- Submit the results of their own testing initiatives;
- Share experiences relevant to the testing of the Guidance.
The testing initiatives may be conducted either as a group or individual exercise, such as face-to-face meetings, workshops or online discussions, and the results are to be reported back using a questionnaire in order to facilitate a coordinated analysis of the results.
Each participant of the Online Forum and AHTEG may report on the results of their testings by posting the questionnaires directly into the discussion. Results from testings conducted by countries or organizations are to be submitted in a consolidated form by their National Focal Points or head offices, respectively.
This online discussion will take place from 28 November to 3 December 2011 (1:00 a.m. GMT). The deadline for submission of testing results is 15 December 2011.
