In our latest publication "The case for a UN civil society champion" we make the case for a stronger role for civil society at the UN and to improve the diversity of voices that get a seat at the table.

We call on the Secretary-General to designate a senior official as a “champion” for civil society, providing them with the resourcing and support needed to enable them to deliver necessary objectives, such as:

- Increasing the Organisation’s limited capacity to engage proactively with civil society.
- More consistency in arrangements for civil society engagement across the UN system.
- And most importantly, give greater assistance to, and opportunities for, civil society organisations to engage with the UN, particularly those from the Global South, to ensure that the Organisation hears from new, more diverse and representative voices.
