About the forum
The first week will be all open plenary meetings.  There will be no closed meetings during the first week.

A condensed schedule during the first week will see the Permanent Forum discuss all substantive agenda items.

During the second week of the 2018 session of the Permanent Forum, members of the Forum will hold informal meetings with representatives of indigenous peoples, Member States and UN entities. The purpose of these meetings will be to draw on information presented during the first week, and channel this into policy recommendations that are strategic, focused and actionable.  Regional dialogues will also be held during the second week. See the Concept Note for more details.

Indigenous representatives, Member States and UN entities that are accredited to attend the 2018 session of the Permanent Forum are invited to attend these meetings.
