Applying for ECOSOC Consultative Status

Consultative status with ECOSOC provides an excellent opportunity for both NGOs and the United Nations to work closely towards a common global agenda. NGOs in consultative status are encouraged to participate in the ECOSOC activities and to cooperate with the United Nations¿ bodies by attending meetings, conferences, or contributing with active participation.

This Learning Module describes the process of applying for ECOSOC Consultative Status, as well provides clear set of instructions on how to pursue and initiate such a process.
