Pages by Category: Networking with NGOs
With the large number of organizations that today enjoy consultative status with the Economic and Social Council, it is essential to facilitate a networking platform among these groups in order to build sustainable partnerships and to better incorporate the efforts being made by the civil society community into the work of the United Nations system, and society at large. CSO Net creates an ideal opportunity for your organization to network with others. If your organization is interested in building partnerships with other NGOs, the information generated through the CSO Net provides ample space to discuss, communicate with, share and collaborate on initiatives and activities.


1. Searching for other NGOs
The integrated Civil Society Organizations (iCSO) System is a large database of civil society organizations that can be used to find contact information of over 13.000 entries. The advanced search allows many combinations, including by organization name and type, region and country, consultative status, language, geographic scope, fields of activity and meeting participation.
