That may depend on your understanding of institutions. One could imagine 
governments delegating the task of participation to special agencies.

I don't see governments participating as individual experts as Milton 
suggests. That would surely create problems of accountability for 
governments or their ministerial administrations. One of the specific 
features of governments is that they are, at least in theory, answerable 
to parliaments and, indirectly, to voters.

As individual experts government delegates would count as civil society 
in my eyes.
