Success at the AMR Innovation Fair

Visit of the Secretary General, Mr. Ban Ki-moon to the Civil Society Pavilion at the AMR Innovation Fair

The NGO Section of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), the UN-NGO-IRENE and their respective partners wish to extend their sincere appreciation for your participation in the Information Sessions of the Annual Ministerial Review (AMR) - Innovation Fair that was held on 2-5 July 2007 at the Palais des Nations. The Innovation Fair ran parallel to the High-level Segment that included the first Annual Ministerial Review organized by ECOSOC focused on “Strengthening efforts to eradicate poverty and hunger, including through the global partenership for development”.This event was undertaken on the initiative of the NGO Section in New-York which helped to organize similar national efforts in India, China and Morroco. We were extremely grateful for the efficient and strong support, of the Office of the United Nations in Geneva and especially, the NGO Liaison Office of the Director General.

The Secretary-General of the United Nations, Mr. Ban Ki-moon, visited the areas where non-governmental organizations were exhibiting. NGO representatives took the opportunity to have a personal discussion with the Secretary General to explain their activities. We were all gratified to see such a high level of NGO involvement in this project. In this respect, we are pleased to attach a descriptive and detailed list of NGOs exhibiting at the Innovation Fair. The film of this event is now posted on our website. And last but not least, you can find attached the link where you can see all the success stories presented by NGO’s around the world.
