Kimberley Process Civil Society Coalition

2018 Brussels Plenary – Opening Remarks by the Civil Society Coalition

“On behalf of the KP Civil Society Coalition, let me start by congratulating the European Union, and in particular, the KP Chair Ms. Hilde Hardeman, for chairing and hosting this 2018 Plenary meeting and for successfully presiding over the June Intersessional Meeting and various KP related events and meetings. I would also like to thank the EU for supporting the civil society coalition to participate in KP meetings and Review Visits. This year we actively participated in Review Visits to Angola and Russia, the tripartite forums in the Mano River Union Regional Approach and various teleconferences.”

“This plenary provides crucial momentum to further the reform agenda focusing on broadening the Scope of the KP, establishing a Permanent Secretariat, Multi-Donor Trust Fund and improving the Peer Review System.”
