Civil Society and the Private Sector
Civil society participation in the General Assembly High-Level Meeting (updated 11 August 2011)
On 10 August 2011, the NGO Branch of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) emailed all non-governmental organizations, academia and private sector organizations that have been approved to participate in the High-Level Meeting on NCDs. Only those organizations approved in a specific General Assembly resolution (A/65/CRP.5) are able to nominate, by 30 August 2011, up to two representatives to participate in the High-Level Meeting. With over 280 organizations approved, this represents an unprecedented level of participation by civil society in a high-level meeting.
Further information on the arrangements for the High-Level Meeting on NCDs, including participation by approved civil society organizations, will be made available on the website of the President of the General Assembly.
