The NGO Major Group supports and facilitates the participation of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in the processes directly and indirectly related to the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development. The membership is broad and varied and we are actively seeking to widen engagement and reach out to NGOs active in any thematic area linked to sustainable development. When possible, we work to organize positions on behalf of the members to be delivered in various United Nations spaces. Because of the diversity of voices and perspectives within this group, we are organized around thematic clusters which act as hubs of expertise on numerous issues and/or Sustainable Development Goals.

To ensure openness and transparency, Organizing Partners of each Major Group were asked to report on their activities and governance since the lead up to the Rio+20 Conference, including a written description of their selection/election criteria and a list of the organizations the Major Group consults with.
