    NGOS@UN - ngos@un - Non-Governmental Organizations at the United Nations
    NGOS@UN was designed as a catalyst for a cooperative information ecology framework to work with the Secretary-General of the United Nations in response to a request from the Economic and Social Council to make every effort to enhance and streamline, as appropriate, practical arrangements to facilitate the participation of non-governmental organizations in the work of the United Nations - and specifically to make effective use of database technology.

    NGOS@UN grew out of the INFOHAB database, and integrated extensive information - from disparate sources - of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) accredited to the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and to the Global Conferences of the 1990s. As it developed, NGOS@UN grew significantly in size and structure incorporating major new sections, including record of NGOs in the process of seeking accreditation with ECOSOC, historical data on NGO accreditation, and information on official United Nations documents pertaining to NGO Accreditation and the work of the Committee on Non-Governmental Organizations.
