Assistance with access and engagement

For assistance in drafting inputs for UN reports or statements for UN sessions and any other advice, contact us at info@HRLO.org. Our organization has also helped NGOs obtain ECOSOC consultative status, which is needed for most (but not all) engagement opportunities at the UN.

 

Book a free introductory consultation here, guaranteed to help you learn more about how to obtain consultative status, what might hold you back and how to overcome challenges in the ECOSOC NGO Committee, as well as what to do with the consultative status once you have it.
