2015 ECOSOC High-Level Segment - Open Call for Oral and Written Statements (9 April - 27 April 2015)The Office for ECOSOC Support and Coordination of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs is pleased to announce an open call for oral and written statements for the 2015 ECOSOC High-Level Segment (HLS) for NGOs in ECOSOC consultative status. The open call will be held from 9 April 2015 to 27 April 2015.
The theme for the 2015 session of the Economic and Social Council is “Managing the transition from the Millennium Development Goals to the sustainable development goals: what it will take”.
The HLS will be held from 6 July to 10 July 2015 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. This is a unique opportunity for organizations in consultative status with ECOSOC - and for civil society at large - to be heard at ECOSOC deliberations, as well as to contribute to issues of critical concern to the global development agenda. It will also provide a platform to specifically address the transition to an ambitious, integrated, coherent, universal post-2015 development agenda through analysis and elaboration in terms of goals, policy choices, institutional adjustments and the assignment of roles and responsibilities among all partners.
The HLS will include the three-day ministerial meeting of the high-level political forum on sustainable development (HLPF), convened under the auspices of the Council, and the annual ministerial review. The theme of the 2015 HLPF “Strengthening integration, implementation and review - the HLPF after 2015” will provide an opportunity to advance the reflection on the elaboration of the overall framework to review and monitor progress on the post-2015 development agenda with the HLPF at its core.
