United Nations Non-Governmental Liaison Service

Description The United Nations Non-Governmental Liaison Service (NGLS) was created in 1975 by several agencies of the United Nations system to serve as a bridge between the UN and civil society organizations. It was established on the belief that meaningful civil society engagement in UN processes and deliberations is essential for the realization of the goals of the organization and the pursuit of global democratic governance.

The goal of NGLS is to strengthen the relations between the United Nations and civil society. Given its distinctive UN interagency nature, NGLS is uniquely placed to foster dialogue and greater coherence around the main issues on the UN agenda (development, human rights, environment, peace and security, and humanitarian affairs).
