A profile in this database and on this website does not in and of itself connote any affiliation with the United Nations, unless such affiliation is expressly indicated, i.e., by identifying the type of ECOSOC consultative status held by an NGO.

Add organizational Profile

All Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), including Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), Institutions, Foundations and Associations that would like to establish a relationship with the Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) are invited to add their organizational profile.

Registered organizations can share their profile with more than 24,000 CSOs, specify their areas of activities, the scope of their work and their involvement in development issues, including sustainable development, social development and advancement of women.

Organizations with a registered profile can also apply for consultative status with the Economic and Social Council. If granted, the organization shall be able to participate in relevant international conferences convened by the United Nations and the meetings of the preparatory bodies of the said conferences.

Before registering your organization, please check first, if your organization has not already been included. Many organizations that have participated in UN sponsored conferences or have applied for consultative status with the Economic and Social Council have been added to this database.

If your organization is included, but you do not know your login details, please contact us.

The profile contains a general part (name, address, organization type), contacts and meeting participation, activities and information related to the substantive areas of DESA. At the end of the profile registration, the user will be asked to select one main objective that fits best to the overall goals of the organization.

The profile registration will take about 10 minutes. Please fill out all mandatory fields. Once completed, your profile will be reviewed by a substantive officer of DESA NGO Branch. You will be informed by email when your registration has been accepted. As it might take few days for your profile to be approved, please refrain from submitting your profile more than once.
