Attendance at Official UN Meetings

Who Can Attend UN Meetings?

Due to UN security regulations and space limitations at UN headquarters in NY, Geneva and Vienna, attendance at UN meetings by NGO representatives are no longer as open as they previously were. Access to the UN and official meetings is open to designated representatives from each recognized NGO.

If you are a FAWCO member  interested in attending an official UN meeting on behalf of FAWCO and live near one of  the main UN headquarters (NY, Geneva or Vienna), you might consider applying to be a FAWCO UN Representative. 

 If you are interested in attending a special UN meeting or conference, please check with FAWCO's UN Liaison at unliaison@fawco.org because in some cases, the UN can allow other representatives to attend official meetings.
