The Commonwealth People’s Forum (CPF)
The CPF brings together civil society representatives from around the world to discuss and debate key issues facing Commonwealth people. It is the single largest opportunity for civil society to engage with Commonwealth leaders on global development issues.
The forum is structured around plenary sessions and interactive workshops and discussions, policy dialogues, cultural events, field visits to CS projects and a formal dialogue between civil society delegates and Foreign Ministers.
The objectives of the CPF are:
- to facilitate the sharing of lessons learned and good practice related to a chosen theme;
- to enable civil society to use the forum’s specific policy dialogues to influence government policy-makers; and
- to promote the Commonwealth Foundation and its work through the forum, via various communication channels.
The Commonwealth Foundation is the intergovernmental agency of the Commonwealth that has the mandate to deliver the CPF and has been supporting civic voices and inputs to CHOGM since 1991.
Rwanda expects up to 120 delegates.
