ECOSOC adjourns operational activities for development segment
A post-2015 agenda focused on sustainable development and poverty eradication required the United Nations to refine the ways it supported countries’ priority development needs, Member States said on 26 February at United Nations Headquarters as ECOSOC concluded the main part of its operational segment for the 2014 session.

The three-day segment started a “forward-looking” dialogue on adapting the United Nations system to important changes taking place in the broader development landscape. In the general discussion, delegates weighed in on how the entire United Nations development system could improve results on the ground. Many encouraged specialized agencies to more effectively exploit their comparative advantage in norm- and standard-setting, while others looked at how “issue-based” alliances within the United Nations could serve as future business models.
