ECOSOC votes to webcast all open sessions of the Committee

ECOSOC – the parent body of the NGO Committee that accredits NGOs to the UN, voted to webcast all open sessions of the Committee. This was in response to recommendations of some concerned NGOs regarding the practices followed by ECOSOC. This new move will enable several low revenue NGOs, whose representative’s cannot attend the sessions in New York to monitor it’s functioning, thus improving transparency and accountability.
