ECOSOC concludes 2014 Substantive Session
The 2014 substantive session of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) included a High-level Segment, as well as the second meeting of the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), held for the first time under the auspices of ECOSOC. The HLPF meeting - taking place on 30 June-9 July - included a three-day ministerial segment and concluded with the adoption of a negotiated ministerial declaration. The ECOSOC High-level Segment took place on 7-11 July, and concluded two weeks in which ministers and other senior Government officials considered key items that would make the post-2015 development agenda a success, highlighting partnerships and moving sustainable development to the forefront.

Following the ECOSOC substantive session, during its Coordination and Management Segment, on 14 July, ECOSOC adopted the report of the Committee on NGOs at its May Session (E/2014/32 (Part II)).
