TAP Network Response to the Post-2015 “Final Draft”


FOR RAPID ENDORSEMENTS: TAP Network Response to the Post-2015 “Final Draft”

For your organization’s RAPID sign-on and endorsement, the TAP Network Joint Response to the “Final Draft” of the Post-2015 Outcome Document, which you can find hereThanks again to all who have contributed your comments in the incredibly narrow timeframe that we were working with! 

For those of you who would like to endorse this position paper through your organization, please simply respond to this email (to me at romano@wfuna.org and Liam at kincaid@wfuna.org) with your logo attached so we can include it on the paper. 

Sign-on/endorsements will be accepted on an ongoing and rolling basis, however, to include your endorsement of the position paper in our initial outreach to Member States, please send us your endorsement ASAP – as we will aim to circulate the position paper to Member States, just prior to the Post-2015 IGN from 20-24 July.

Please also note that as always, sign-on/endorsement is not necessarily limited to CSOs that are already part of the TAP Network, so your help in reaching out to other potentially interested organizations is very much appreciated – and you can forward this message, and our contact information, on to them as well.

Again, we have done our best to align the language amendments and broader points to already agreed-upon points and principles from our Zero Draft Response and other TAP Network position papers, and we are very grateful to all of you who have constructively contributed to this joint response along those lines as well. With such a limited timeframe for edits/comments/discussion on the various topics in the revised draft, we did not want to stray very far from the content/inputs that we came together around a few weeks ago in our Zero Draft Response – particularly since we had such a strong level of endorsements for our that Zero Draft Response. For full transparency’s sake, we have left the comments/edits untouched again, so you can see everyone’s inputs.

Additionally, as we have done in the past, we have provided an opportunity for you all to input into the Compendium of TAP Network edits to the Post-2015 “final draft.” If you would like your language amendments from your organization to be included in our advocacy going forward – including those points that may not have made it in to this joint response – please paste your language edits into the google doc ASAP, as we will send this compendium document around as a complementary resource to the TAP joint response.
