About Us

The NGO Committee on Social Development is dedicated to raising awareness of and contributing to discussions on social development issues taken up by the United Nations (UN) System and in particular by the UN Commission for Social Development. The Committee also advocates on social development issues in other forums such as the High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development, the Commission on the Status of Women, the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), and at the General Assembly. Committee members keep one another informed and deliver group statements to the UN voicing ideas and positions on key social development issues. In addition, the Committee is focused contributing to the implementation of the outcome of the World Summit on Social Development. The NGO Committee on Social Development is a substantive committee of the Conference of Non-Governmental Organizations in Consultative Relationship with the United Nations (CoCommission for Social Development – CSocD58NGO).
