CSOs demand for access to participate at the 2017 High Level Political Forum

A letter has been sent to the President of the UN Economic and Social Council by CSOs to demand for their voices to be heard at the 2017 High Level Political Forum. CSOs stated in the letter that “…To ensure that the civil society voices heard at the HLPF are diverse, it is essential that non-state representatives are from different parts of the world. For participants from many countries, the decision to participate in the HLPF has to be made on whether they can meaningfully participate through fora like side events which also implicates a series of complex logistics, especially for those coming from developing countries…” The letter has been endorsed by over 130 signatories from all over the world. The letter can be accessed at:
