Since 2015, Northern Citizen Community Board (NCCB) is a “UN-accredited NGO in Special Consultative Status to the UN Economic and Social Council (hereafter: “ECOSOC”)”. Northern CCB is one of the few Pakistan Based social enterprises/non-profit organizations that have been granted this status. Consultative status for an organization enables it to actively engage with ECOSOC and its subsidiary bodies, as well as with the United Nations Secretariat, programs, funds and agencies in a number of ways. The ECOSOC grants Special Consultative Status (hereafter: “SCS”) to NGOs whose programs are of direct relevance to the aims and purpose of the United Nations. The SCS allows NGOs to attend UN conferences, designate UN representatives to all UN missions in the world, and circulate statements at ECOSOC and other UN meetings.
