Accreditation for journalists

Accredited journalists are entitled to full access to all plenaries and side events of the UNCCD 2nd Scientific Conference.

In order to cover the proceedings, journalists need to get accredited through their media organizations.

Accreditation can be made to participate in any or all three events (the 2nd Scientific conference, CST S-3, CRIC 11). Journalists must specify if they wish to be accredited for only one or all the three meetings.

The following documentation is needed to facilitate the accreditation of each journalist:

  • A letter of introduction of the journalist(s) from the bureau chief
  • A passport for foreigners or identification card with a photograph for local journalists
  • One passport size color photograph (about 2cmx2cm)
  • A valid press card
  • A filled out request form for the accreditation of the journalist.

The accreditation form is available for download here:
