2012: A PROPOSAL FOR FORMING A NEW PYRAMID: UNITED NATIONS NGO GENERAL ASSEMBLY

2012: A PROPOSAL FOR FORMING A NEW PYRAMID: UNITED NATIONS NON-GOVERMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY | #UNNGOGA

UN-NGOGA is aimed to be formed by the entire DPI associated NGOs and the ECOSOC associated NGOs in order to bring all the UN associated NGOs under one roof and as a representative body within the UN System with an overarching aim working also with the counterpart of the UN-General Assembly. UN-NGO-GA will be independent from the DPI-NGO Executive Committee and CONGO, yet aims to transform both capacity and experience, and create a new synergy for global pressing and emerging issues.
