  3. Further recalling Decision 12.COM 17,
  4. Accredits the twenty-nine NGOs listed in the Annex to this Resolution to act in an advisory capacity to the Committee;
  5. Encourages NGOs from under-represented Electoral Groups that meet the criteria for accreditation to submit their requests for accreditation at the earliest opportunity so as to improve the geographical distribution of accredited NGOs and invites States Parties from those Electoral Groups to make this call widely known among NGOs operating within their territories;
  6. Invites the NGOs accredited in 2014 to submit to the Secretariat their quadrennial report in 2019 so that at its fourteenth session the Committee can review the contribution and commitment of each advisory organization;
  7. Takes note of the ongoing reflection undertaken by the Secretariat and the informal ad hoc working group, co-chaired by Algeria and the Philippines, in consultation with accredited NGOs, on the participation of NGOs under the 2003 Convention and requests that the Committee and the Secretariat present the updates on this reflection at the next session of the General Assembly.
