  • The ECOSOC Committee of NGOs will continue their meeting on 7th June 2013.

    The 2013 regular session of the Committee on NGOs was held earlier this year and saw a record number of applications from NGOs seeking consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). On 20-29 May, and on 7 June, the Committee will resume its session and make decisions about which NGOs to accept for general, special or roster consultative status.

    The International Family forestry Alliance (IFFA) is recommended for consultative status.
