20 Jan 2021
HDEC received a high volume of application submissions towards the end of 2020, more than its scheduled meetings could review due to the Standard Operating Procedures limiting the HDEC to 12 applications a meeting. As a result, the HDEC secretariat following ongoing discussions with the Committee, was able to come up with two additional meeting dates over January and February 2021. Find out more.
