United Nations Department of Public Information
The United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI) helps non-governmental organizations gain access to and disseminate information about United Nations issues so the public can better understand the aims and objectives of the organizations. It is one of the members of the United Nations Development Group with its Regional Commissions (ECA, ECE, ECLAC, ESCAP, ESCWA), rotating annually.
The DPI also operates over 60 UN Information Centres (also known as information services or information offices) around the world (including the United Nations Information Service at Geneva) in order to disseminate the information to regional NGOs.
Membership as NGO
Any recognized national or international or multinational organization can apply if it meets certain minimal criteria.
