iCSO -   UN-DESA Civil Society System
iCSO - UN-DESA Civil Society System: UN-DESA has developed an integrated Civil Society Organizations (iCSO) System that greatly eases interactions among civil society organizations (CSOs) and the Department. The site provides online registration for non-governmental organizations (NGOs), facilitates the application procedure for consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and helps those NGOs already accredited to the Council to submit their quadrennial reports and to designate representatives to the United Nations.

Please note that the log in information to the above system is the same as to the UN-DESA Event Management System.
