The United Nations (UN) system collaborates extensively with civil society organisations (CSOs) in many areas of its work, such as in policymaking, consultancies and in project implementation. The role of civil society, especially in support of the UN's initiatives around the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), was the focus the Asian Civil Society Forum (ACSFA) held in Bangkok, Thailand from 22 to 25 November 2004. The forum was organised by the Conference of Non-Governmental Organisations in consultative relationship with the UN (CONGO). Around 300 participants from non-government organisations (NGO) or civil society organisations (CSO) attended, some working on national or regional level advocacy.
