Continuing 2022 Session, Non-Governmental Organizations Committee Defers Action on 18 Entities for Status, Takes Note of More Than 600 Quadrennial Reports
The Committee on Non-Governmental Organizations continued its 2022 session today, deferring requests by 18 entities for special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council, while taking note of 600 new and 4 deferred quadrennial reports submitted by organizations already in consultative status.
The Committee deferred its consideration of 10 newly submitted quadrennial reports, as well as 23 reports previously deferred from past sessions, as members requested further information from those organizations about, among other items, details of their activities, partners, expenditures and sources of funding for the periods under review.
In addition, members approved requests for hearings from 68 non-governmental organizations in consultative status with the Economic and Social Council.
The 19-member Committee considers applications for consultative status and requests for reclassification submitted by non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Once an application has been reviewed and approved by the Committee, it is considered recommended for consultative status. Organizations which were granted general and special status can attend meetings of the Council and issue statements, while those with general status can also speak during meetings and propose agenda items. Organizations with roster status can only attend meetings.
The Committee on Non-Governmental Organizations will meet again at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, 24 May, to continue its session.
