Dear Colleagues,

Due to the unforeseen circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic and the consequent worldwide travel restrictions, the Secretariat has determined that the 21st Conference of International Investigators (CII) will be postponed to 5th – 7th May 2021. The conference will remain in Rome, Italy, hosted by WFP, in consultation with FAO and IFAD.

Depending on the level of interest from attendees, we are seeking feedback on whether the conference will be preceded by two days of optional on 3rd and 4th of May 2021. The official invitation, including a programme and registration details, will be circulated in due course.

To secure the venue and to negotiate hotel rates in the Rome area, we would appreciate your feedback on the questions below, by 30th November 2020 to: oig.cii2020@wfp.org. If you have already responded to the earlier request related to the October 2020 conference, that is now postponed, please let us know if the information remains the same:

  • How many participants from your organization plan to attend the general conference between 5th and 7th May 2021 (please provide their names, titles and email addresses)?
  • Would your organization like to propose a speaker and/or a topic to be discussed during the general conference and if so, please provide this information?
  • Is your organization willing to conduct a break-out session during the general conference or provide speakers for the plenary sessions and if so, please provide this information?
  • Is your organization interested in attending the optional two-day pre-conference training sessions on 3rd and 4th May 2021 and if so, how many participants plan to attend (please provide their names, titles, and email addresses)?
  • Would your organization like to propose a speaker and/or a topic for the pre-conference training and if so, please provide this information?

Please forward this “Save the Date” message to others in your organization, with a role in investigations, who may be interested in attending the event.

We look forward to seeing you in Rome in May 2021!

With our best regards,

Patricia Kiko Harvey
Inspector General, WFP
and the Conference Secretariat
