ECOSOC) Adopts CSR-in-Action to Committee on Non-Governmental Organizations

-

- Advertisment -

ECOSOCUnited Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) has adopted the recommendation of the Committee on Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to grant Special Consultative status CSR-in-Action (CiA).

This was made known by the executive director of the organization, Bekeme Masade at a press release that was made known to the public recently.

The adoption that was done at Coordination and Management Session will enable the organization to actively engage with ECOSOC and its subsidiary bodies, as well as with the United Nations Secretariat, programmes, funds and agencies in a number of ways.

The ways include opportunities to request the Secretary-General through the Committee on Non-Governmental Organizations, to place items of special interest in the provisional agenda of the Council.

It will also entitle CiA access to the United Nations and attendance to meetings and as well as to designate official representatives to the United Nations Headquarters in New York, the United Nations offices in Geneva and Vienna, conferences and activities of the United Nations and organizations in general.

In addition, this status will enable CiA the opportunity to designate authorized representatives to sit as observers at public meetings of ECOSOC and its subsidiary bodies, General Assembly, Human Rights Council and other United Nations intergovernmental decision-making bodies.

Consequently, in special consultative status, CiA is able to submit written statements relevant to the work of the Council on subjects in which we have a special competence. These statements may be circulated by the Secretary-General of the United Nations to the members of the Council

This status will also offer CiA access to use of United Nations facilities, accommodation for conferences or smaller meetings related to work of ECOSOC, access to United Nations press documentation services, use of United Nations libraries.

The organization uses the medium to express its gratitude to the NGO branch of the department of Economic and Social Affairs and to the members of the organization who have supported the vision from early conception.
