Meeting jointly under the theme “The development and peace dimensions of forced displacement: Countries’ best practices in creating durable solutions”, the Economic and Social Council and the Peacebuilding Commission today heard that addressing the needs of refugees and internally displaced persons requires a holistic approach that goes beyond the mere provision of humanitarian aid.


The Economic and Social Council concluded its 2024 management segment this morning with a discussion to integrate key messages from its subsidiary bodies and the UN system on the Council’s main theme, develop action-oriented recommendations for follow-up and feed into the high-level political forum on sustainable development (as mandated by GA resolution 75/290 A).


The Economic and Social Council today opened its 2024 management segment today taking up items including: economic and environmental questions; coordination, programme and other questions; the role of the United Nations system in the integration of the three dimensions of sustainable development into the implementation of and follow-up to the 2030 Agenda; implementation of and follow-up to major UN conferences; non-governmental organizations; summits; organizational and other matters; and elections, nominations, confirmations and appointments.
