The 2017 Integration Segment of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) will take place from 8 to 10 May 2017 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. The Segment will be chaired by His Excellency Mr. Nabeel Munir, Vice-President of ECOSOC (Pakistan). The Segment will address the theme “Making eradication of poverty an integral objective of all policies: what will it take?”

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 under the auspices of ECOSOC, to take place 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.
