ECOSOC Integration Segment 2017

The UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Integration Segment for 2017 will convene on the theme, 'Making eradication of poverty an integral objective of all policies: what will it take?', chaired by Nabeel Munir, Vice-President of ECOSOC (Pakistan). The 2017 ECOSOC Integration Segment will serve as a platform for key stakeholders to identify and discuss opportunities and challenges in developing integrated approaches to tackle poverty in a sustained, inclusive and sustainable manner. The meeting will consider best practices, lessons learned and recommendations at the national, regional and international levels, with a view to extract policy recommendations to guide integrated policymaking for poverty eradication as an integral part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Its proceedings will be available for consideration by Member States in the 2017 ECOSOC High-level Segment and the 2017 High-level Political Forum for Sustainable Development (HLPF) in July 2017. Relevant policy recommendations may be reflected in the Ministerial Declaration as the main outcome document at the culmination of the ECOSOC cycle.
