CIVICUS and Rio+20

What is CIVICUS' involvement with Rio+20?
CIVICUS is an Organising Partner. In October 2011, CIVICUS was appointed by UNDESA as an Organising Partner of the NGO Major Group, to assist ANPED and Consumers International with this role.

The CIVICUS Mandate
As Organising Partner, CIVICUS' added value lies in its unique position as a global civil society network anchored in the Global South. This  makes CIVICUS best suited to mobilize NGOs from the South as well as organizations from the broader non-core environmental sector, enabling them to be adequately represented in the Rio+20 processes.

CIVICUS is a legally registered non-profit 501 (c) (3) organisation, EIN 52-1847010 (USA)

CIVICUS is a registered non-profit organisation, registration number 029-864-NPO (South Africa) 

As a signatory/member to the INGO Accountability Charter CIVICUS is committed to upholding the highest standards of professional conduct and accountability.
