Organizational Mapping

In order to be more responsive to the needs and realities of Catholic Inspired NGOs, a questionnaire was sent to over 100 Catholic-inspired international NGOs in order to develop a picture as to where organizations are active at the international level and what issues they are working on.

In 2009 a full report was compiled and found that the organizations engaged in a rich diversity of activities before many Intergovernmental bodies: 41 before UNESCO, 30 before UNICEF, 28 before the OHCHR, 23 before the ILO/BIT, 20 before the FAO, 21 before the UNDP, 18 before the WHO, 17 before the UNHCR, 15 before the WORLD BANK, 15 before the UND Ec Soc Dev, 11 before the WFP, 10 before the OCHA, 9 before the UNIFEM, 8 before the IMF, 8 before UNEP, 6 before the UNDAW, 4 before the UNFPA, 3 before the IFAD, 3 before the UNCTAD, 4 before the UNDCP, 3 before the WTO, 3 before the UNHabitat, 3 before the UNODC, 2 before UNAIDS, 2 before UNIDO, 2 before UNODA, 2 before UNRWA,  1 before IMO, 1 before ITU, 1 before the UNCDF, 1 before the UNV, 1 before the UNDHA, and 1 before the UNFCC.  There are 31 organizations engaged in advocacy before the Council of Europe, 35 before the European Union, and 10 before other Regional/Continental Bodies.
