Survey for stakeholders on the UPR Fund for financial and technical assistance

On 25 March 2011, the Human Rights Council (HRC) adopted resolution 16/22 on the enhancement of international cooperation in the field of human rights and requested the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights "˜to seek the views of States and relevant stakeholders on the contribution of the Voluntary Fund for Financial and Technical Assistance , in particular with regard to its sustainability and accessibility, to the implementation of recommendations accepted by States as part of their universal periodic review that require financial support, and also requests the Office to provide the Council with a compilation of those views at its nineteenth session .'

In order to seek these views, the OHCHR prepared an online questionnaire. A compilation of the responses received by 04 November 2011, will be submitted to the HRC in March 2012.
