Guidance on Ministerial level interventions from the floor in the UNFSS+2 Plenary Sessions

Guidance on Ministerial level interventions

Ministers that are interested to deliver interventions from the floor during the UNFSS+2 Stocktaking Moment Plenary Sessions are kindly invited to register for a specific Plenary. Interventions will be prioritized for Ministers that are not involved in any panels and do not have speaking slots in any other session (Leadership Dialogues, Special Events, High-Level Session, and panels of Plenary Sessions). Please note that due to the large number of Ministerial level Delegates one registration per country will be considered in a first-come first-served basis.

A total of 90 minutes is allocated for interventions from the floor in each of the three Plenary of 25 and 26 July. The time allocation per each intervention will be set to 2½ minutes with a buffer time of 30 seconds to conclude the intervention. A countdown clock will be visible in the room and at the end of the 2½ minutes, it will alert the speaker on the remaining time to close the intervention. At the mark of the third minute the Moderator will ask the speaker to conclude and will pass the floor to the next pre-registered intervention.

Pre-registration for interventions is open until Thursday 20 July 2023 at 18:00 Rome time using the following link:
