2. PROPOSAL FOR THE MILLENNIUM NGO FORUM
The Secretary General has also proposed that non-governmental organizations and other civil society actors organize a Millennium NGO Forum in connection with the Millennium Summit & Assembly.
The Conference of Non-governmental Organizations (CONGO) has during the last 18 months sponsored a series of consultations organized by the CONGO Chairs Task Force on UN Reform. The one-day consultations have focused on UN Reform, increasing NGO access to the UN and the proposed Millennium NGO Forum.
The CONGO Executive Board also had the opportunity in Geneva to brief the Secretary General on the plans of CONGO on the Millennium NGO Forum and the possibility of establishing a liaison mechanism for consultations with the UN Secretariat.
