    "How do NGOs and DPI cooperate?
    The Department of Public Information and NGOs cooperate regularly. NGOs associated
    with DPI disseminate information about the UN to their membership, thereby building
    knowledge of and support for the Organization at the grassroots level.

    Notice :" ..and support for the Organisation .." ( i.e. The United Nations, of course)

    If you think it's not enough…take a look:

    "In 1968, the Economic and Social Council, by Resolution 1297 (XLIV) of 27 May, called
    on DPI to associate NGOs, bearing in mind the letter and spirit of its Resolution 1296
    (XLIV) of 23 May 1968, which stated that an NGO "...shall undertake to support the
    work of the United Nations and to promote knowledge of its principles and activities, in
    accordance with its own aims and purposes and the nature and scope of its competence
    and activities".

    Again, "…shall undertake to support the work of the United Nations".

    So every NGO has taken that kind of responsibility.

    Furthermore , take a look at this:

    "What are the Criteria for NGOs to become associated with DPI?"
    Organizations eligible for association with DPI are those which:

    Share the ideals of the UN Charter;

      Close

      Confirm ...
