Capacity-building is one of the core objectives of the Regular Process. In accordance with the programme of work for the period 2017-2020 for the second cycle of the Regular Process, a two-day multi-stakeholder dialogue and capacity-building partnership event (“the Event”), was held from 24 to 25 January 2019 in New York, in order to provide an opportunity to build awareness and collaboration with respect to capacity-building in support of the Regular Process, including with respect to building capacity to participate in, and make use of, integrated assessments.
