Together with our network of like-minded colleagues and other NGOs, we raise awareness of our priority issues and advocate at the United Nations (UN). Our advocacy is primarily focused on issues affecting women and children, particularly gender equity, eradication of poverty, access to quality education and health, elimination of gender violence, and trafficking of human persons.

We work with the following Committees, Major and Working Groups from civil society:

  • The NGO Committee on Sustainable Development (NGO CSocD) seeks to further the integration of the three dimensions of sustainable development: environmental, economic, and social. Within the Committee the Working Group on the Integrity of Earth works towards a harmonious integration of Earth Rights and Human Rights in the larger context of Sustainable Development.
  • The Working Group on Girls (WGG) is dedicated to promoting the human rights of the girl child in all areas and stages of her life, advancing the inclusion and status of girls and assisting them to develop their full potential.
  • The NGO Committee on Financing for Development (NGO FfD) advocates for a worldwide economy that is environmentally and socially sustainable, ethical, and people-centered.
  • NGO Committee on Migration seeks to realize justice for migrants, refugees, stateless persons, internally displaced persons, and trafficked persons. Their mission is to encourage the promotion and protection of migrants and their human rights, in accordance with the United Nations Charter.
  • The Alliance of NGOs on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice brings together a broad network of civil society organizations contributing to the achievement of security and justice for all. It acts as an information-sharing, advocacy and collaboration platform supporting informed engagement by NGOs with the UN Office of Drug and Crime (UNODC) and member states. Our focus is to ensure the full implementation of the Palermo Protocol (Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons Especially Women and Children)
  • The NGO Major Group is tasked with facilitating and enhancing the engagement of non-governmental organizations in the processes directly and indirectly related to the High Level Political Forum (HLPF).
