Special Accreditation and Registration for the Sustainable Development Summit on 25-17 September is now closed
In accordance with General Assembly decision A/69/L.43 regarding the organization of the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit, the United Nations Secretariat had invited representatives of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and civil society organizations (CSOs) to indicate their interest in participating in the plenary meetings and interactive dialogues of the Summit. There was a call for applications for special accreditation to the Summit, followed by a general registration process for accredited NGOs.

General registration closed on 24 August and all applications are currently under review. As a first step in the review process, the Selection Committee of civil society representatives convened for the Sustainable Development Summit will recommend a short-list of the NGO and CSO applicants, considering space allocation for the Summit plenary and interactive dialogues, ensuring regional and gender balance, diversity of constituencies and age, and experience working on the post-2015 development agenda, with expertise in sustainable development issues. The short-list will then be sent to the President of the General Assembly (PGA) who will ensure that the above balance, diversity and expertise criteria are met in the final list to be presented to Member States. The PGA will then submit the list of representatives from NGOs and CSOs to Member States for their consideration on a non-objection basis. The decisions on organizations' applications for special accreditation and individual registrations to the Summit should be communicated by the end of the first week of September.
