CSO registration requests can be submitted online. CSO registration closes on September 7, and no new requests will be accepted after this deadline. Accreditation can take up to 21 days, so participants are encouraged to apply early.
As in previous years, the IMF and the World Bank Group will host the Civil Society Policy Forum (CSPF) as part of the 2018 Annual Meetings. The CSPF serves as a platform for Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to openly share their views and perspectives, while facilitating dialogue with IMF and World Bank Group staff, their peers, and other stakeholders on a wide range of topics. The 2018 Annual Meetings CSPF will convene in Bali, Indonesia from October 9-12.
All CSO representatives interested in participating in the CSPF must obtain individual accreditation. This accreditation will also provide access to all the open events of the 2018 Annual Meetings. For purposes of registration, CSOs include non-governmental organizations, community groups, labor unions, indigenous people’s movements, faith-based organizations, professional associations, foundations, think tanks, charitable organizations, and other not-for-profit organizations. All other participants - such as representatives from the private sector, academia or governmental bodies - must apply for accreditation through the "Guests" or other relevant registration category.
