Committee on NGOs Convenes for First Session of 2014
The 2014 regular session of the Committee on Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) will take place in New York from 21 to 30 January and is expected to consider 220 new applications for consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) by NGOs as well as 219 applications deferred from earlier sessions.
 
The Committee will also review 290 quadrennial reports of NGOs in general or special consultative status, as well as 23 quadrennial reports deferred from earlier sessions. The Committee will meet again on 7 February to adopt its report of the session. The session’s recommendations will then be sent to ECOSOC for its approval in July 2014.
 
The Committee on NGOs is a standing committee of ECOSOC, established by the Council in 1946. It reports directly to ECOSOC, and the two reports of its annual regular session (usually at the end of January) and resumed session (in May) include draft resolutions or decisions on matters calling for action by the Council.
