The UN Economic and Social Council's (ECOSOC) Integration Segment will take place on Monday, 8 July 2019, the day before the opening of the 2019 session of the UN High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF 2019).
By a 2018 UNGA resolution on strengthening ECOSOC, the integration segment will “consolidate all the inputs of Member States, including case studies and lessons learned, the subsidiary bodies of ECOSOC, the UN system and other relevant stakeholders to promote the balanced integration of the three dimensions of sustainable development” in order to bring together key messages on the main theme, along with action-oriented recommendations to feed into the HLPF.
Also per the resolution, the Council's integration segment, HLPF and high-level segment comprise the third group of meetings in ECOSOC's restructured annual calendar. This set of meetings aims to provide policy guidance and foster progress in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, contribute to the overall review of the 2030 Agenda at the HLPF and look to the future of the advancement of sustainable development.
