The Global Compact Office has introduced new guidelines to support regional and local networks in the organization of outreach events and other network activities. These easy-to-use guidelines are the result of the Berne Workshop on Outreach/Networks and subsequent consultations with other agencies concerned. They are intended to facilitate the work of organisers of outreach events as well as of Global Compact country, regional and sectoral networks, outlining the objectives of outreach events and providing organisational guidance. The guidelines further define the role of the different actors and how they should be coordinated, and finally explain the recommended role of country, regional and sectoral networks. An additional segment provides indicators for the self-assessment of networks.
