We are pleased to announce that we have just been granted special consultative status with the United Nations.

From now on, we can put forward our inputs at public meetings in United Nations international conference and their preparatory bodies. Each year, we will receive the provisional agenda of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), which we may attend and we now have the capability to submit our written statements and make presentations to governments represented at this council.

We are one of the few NGO’s that has been granted consultative status with the United Nations, of which we are incredibly pleased!
