The personal data of participants applying for, registering for or participating in UNITAR's training courses and other events is governed by the Data Protection and Privacy Policy. By applying for, registering for or participating in this event, the participant acknowledges that he or she is, (or they are) aware of the policy and agree to its terms.

Writing reports and other kinds of documents is one of the immediate follow-up tasks of participation in intergovernmental conferences, meetings, and negotiations. This task is extremely time-consuming even more so for the conference delegate who does not possess appropriate tools or does not apply a comprehensive methodology. A successful report depends firstly on the specific body of knowledge that the writer possesses and secondly on specialized techniques which allow the written transfer of that knowledge to be as smooth and as effective as possible. Good and effective statements, reports, and other written documents leave no opportunity for the reader to miss or misunderstand any facts or arguments. 

To formally apply, kindly send your updated CV and passport ID page to diplomacy [at]
