    11/11/2007

    Nongovernmental organizations are able to establish a mutually profitable cooperative relationship with the UN, through consultative status to the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), one of the UN’s main bodies. In order to fulfill its mission more effectively, ECOSOC calls upon the resources offered by NGO’s whose activities and expertise may complement those of the UN.

    In concrete terms, consultative status conveys a number of privileges, the principle ones being: attendance at ECOSOC meetings and conferences and those of its subsidiary bodies, the opportunity to submit written statements and, in certain cases, to make oral presentations; participation in UN-led international conferences; and attendance at General Assembly special sessions, as well as at other intergovernmental meetings.
