Other Inter-Governmental Organizations (IGOs) and inter-agency mechanisms
Inter-governmental organizations (IGOs) play an important role in advancing the implementation of sustainable development both at the regional and international levels.

A diverse range of IGOs have engaged thus far and contributed to the Rio+20 preparations.

These include the partnership of the Regional Development Banks with the Regional Commissions and other UN system entities in organising the Regional Preparatory Meetings; OECD carrying out specific work on green growth; and a wide variety of UN system inter-agency mechanisms coming together to provide expertise and input to inform the preparatory process, just to mention a few.

The full list of IGOs that provided input to the compilation document is accessible here.

Link to Observers of the United Nations:

At Rio+20 and during its preparatory process, IGOs interested in participating in the meeting will be required to be accredited to the UN and register accordingly.

Other IGOs interested in obtaining an ad hoc accreditation for the purpose of the Rio+20 Conference can submit an application to:

ECOSOC Affairs Branch
General Assembly and ECOSOC Affairs Division/DGACM

The application will be reviewed against the existing criteria (geographical scope, membership note that at least three Member countries must be specified in the application- ) and if these are met, the requesting IGO will be submitted through the Bureau to the approval of the PrepCom on its first day. Only after the approval, the newly accredited IGO representative(s) will be issued a UN-ID Pass.

For more information on accreditation and registration of IGOs pls refer to our Registration
