What Can You Do

The wide range of policy fields affected by the 2005 Convention as well as its local, national and international implications provide opportunities to many actors, whether Parties to the Convention or not, to be directly or indirectly involved in activities under its aegis.

The implementation of the 2005 Convention at policy and programme level has required the involvement of a wide range of actors and often led to the setting-up of new consultative bodies or governance frameworks. Arrangements favouring the participation of civil society and other actors, as well as the interaction among them, have been enhanced or established in several countries as established by the Convention (in particular in Articles 11 on “Participation of Civil Society” and 15 on “Collaborative arrangements”).

This section outlines the key stakeholders and the general types of applicable interventions in which they may participate.
