Trust fund to support the participation of LDCs and SIDS in the UN Human Rights Council

This Voluntary Technical Assistance Trust Fund aims to ensure that LDCs and SIDS, in particular those without permanent representation in Geneva, are able to participate and contribute to the work of the Human Rights Council.  It does so by providing training on human rights and engagement with the Council, fellowship programmes and practical induction trainings for delegates, annual briefings to delegates in New York on the engagement with the General Assembly, and regional workshops.  As per resolution 19/26 of the Human Rights Council (2012), it also provides funding for travel and accommodation of Government officials to participate in Human Rights Council sessions.
