This note highlights key elements of the report of the Secretary-General of the United Nations in response to the report of the Panel of Eminent Persons on United Nations–Civil Society Relations. These elements include suggestions for increasing the participation of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in intergovernmental bodies, increasing the participation of NGOs from developing countries, improving accreditation, and improving the United Nations dialogue with NGOs. The note also describes the corresponding situation in the Convention process. Following an extensive discussion of these matters at its twentieth session, the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) is invited to consider outstanding questions, including with regard to the admission of observer organizations. Taking into account the recent developments in the United Nations, the SBI may wish to conclude its consideration of these matters and return to them at a future session
