    UNESCAP-UNECE-ICC-WCO-ADB Webinar on Advancing Single Window Development: latest trends and implications

    Submitted by WCHAROENSR on Tue, 25/04/2023 - 09:51
    Event attendance type
    Event Background

    In the ever-evolving landscape of single window expansion, two recent developments will substantially impact the trading environment of ports and the EU.

    The first is the adoption of amendments to the Facilitation (FAL) Convention under the auspices of the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) Facilitation Committee. This game-changing decision will make the single window for data exchange a mandatory requirement in ports worldwide, fueling a rapid acceleration of digitalization in shipping. The amendments are set to come into force on January 1, 2024.[1]

    The second development is the establishment of the EU Single Window Environment for Customs, which entered into EU law in December 2022 after nearly a decade of pilot projects and almost four years of preparations and negotiations. This regulation wold enable trading within the EU through its legal framework, designed to dramatically improve information sharing and digital cooperation among customs administrations and various government authorities. By streamlining the enforcement of non-customs formalities at the EU border in crucial areas such as health and safety, environmental protection, food and product safety, and agriculture, this initiative will empower economic operators to clear specific customs formalities with unprecedented ease.[2]

    Join our webinar to delve into the very essence of these Single Window developments. We will explore the success stories and lessons learned while shedding light on these innovations' transformative potential for industry and their far-reaching implications on trade.

      The potential policy options and approaches to deal with sovereign debt distress while keeping in view the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and long-term climate ambitions were discussed. Given a vast diversity among different regions of the world, this event also discussed policy experiences and lessons which can inform policy formulation and implementation in other regions. It also discussed ways by which enhanced multilateral cooperation, with the support of United Nations Regional Commissions, can facilitate member States and the international development community in taking their initiatives forward.

      General

      The sixth session of the Committee on Transport is scheduled to be held from 12 to 13 November 2020.

      The secretariat is monitoring the rapidly evolving situation with regard to the COVID-19 outbreak and is putting into place measures to mitigate public health risks associated with mass gatherings. The secretariat continues to receive guidance from the World Health Organization, the authorities of the host country of ESCAP and the United Nations Secretariat.

      Decisions on the schedule and modality of the Committee session to ensure the safety and well-being of all participants will be communicated as soon as practicable.

      Credentials

      Delegations are kindly requested to submit letters of credentials to Mr. Weimin Ren, Director, Transport Division, ESCAP, United Nations Building, Rajadamnern Nok Avenue, Bangkok 10200, Thailand, Fax: (66-2) 288-1067, 288-3050, at their earliest convenience prior to 1 October 2018.. Letters of credential should be addressed to the Executive Secretary of the ESCAP and emailed to [email protected].

      Registration and identification badges

      Participants are requested to register and obtain a visitor’s badge with ID picture on the first day of the meeting, i.e. Monday, 19 November 2018 between 08.00 hours and 09.00 hours. This is done at the Registration Counter located on the ground floor of the UNCC. Participants who are not able to register during the time indicated above are requested to do so immediately upon their arrival at UNCC and before going to the conference room. This procedure is important for security reason and will also ensure that all participants’ names appear on the list of participants.

      Online registration

      In conformity with standard United Nations security procedures, all participants must complete a mandatory online registration at https://meetings.unescap.org/. Participants are encouraged to complete this procedure well in advance of the meeting and no later than 1 October 2018. To facilitate the process, participants are encouraged to submit their photo in advance.

      For identification and security reasons, all participants are requested to wear their meeting badges at all times when on the United Nations compound, and also during the meeting and at social functions.

      The secretariat has adopted a paperless approach to meetings. As a result, participants are expected to get acquainted with all the meeting documents prior to the meeting.

      ESCAP does not provide financial assistance for participation in the 5th session of the Committee on Transport.

A voucher to be cashed at the bank located on the ESCAP premises will be given to participants. Participants will receive their vouchers against submittal of a copy of their passports, copy of their air-tickets and the original boarding pass(es) for the flight(s) to Bangkok. To facilitate the issuance of vouchers, eligible participants are kindly requested to come with read-made copies of their passports. To date, the DSA for Bangkok is Thai Baht 7,150 (about US$ 216). Please note that this amount is subject to change without prior notice.

      Participants who are unable to stay for the entire duration of the meeting are requested to inform the secretariat as soon as possible after their arrival so that the DSA can be adjusted accordingly.

      In those cases where the participation costs are borne by ESCAP, the secretariat will provide only travel and DSA as expressed and will not assume responsibility for any other expenditures, including the following:

        Key Questions:

        1. In areas/countries with large data gaps on population and their characteristics, what are the challenges to develop a DRR strategy? How can data contribute to effective early warning systems and how they can be implemented in areas with limited resources and infrastructure?
        2. What are the current technological innovations and tools being used to improve data collection and reporting on the human impacts of disasters? How can data integration be also utilized in this aspect?
        3. When the disaster hits, how can we estimate the number of affected persons during and after the disaster: Women, children, old people, disabled, poor? How do population censuses, administrative records, Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) system support in measuring human impacts of disasters (deaths, injured, displaced, evacuated, received aid, loss of jobs, loss of activity days etc.) in particular and to disaster-related statistics in general?
