General Consultative Status

In 2004, MMM was granted General Consultative Status. The General Consultative status was renewed in 2012.

MMM and its member associations work at grassroots level and create links between civil society and governments. The United Nations need the help of such l NGOs to implement their programme..

The Economic and Social Council of the United Nations (ECOSOC) is one of the six organs of the United Nations. The main concerns of ECOSOC are sustainable development; social development; status of women; population, development and human rights.
ECOSOC promotes three main activities:

    • Creating higher standards of living, employment, economic and social progress
    • Solving problems related to health, economic, social, educational and cultural issues
    • Establishing universal respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.

 In 1949,  MMM was granted Special Consultative Status which acknowledges a special competence in few of the fields of activity covered by the ECOSOC.

This enabled MMM :

    • To send representatives to the UN
    • Attend meetings of ECOSOC and its subsidiaries
    • Speak at ECOSOC meetings and circulate written statements.
