2017 ECOSOC High-Level Segment - Open Call for Oral and Written Statements (3 - 21 April 2017)
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 2017 ECOSOC High-Level Segment (HLS) for NGOs in ECOSOC consultative status. The open call will be held from 3 to 21 April 2017.

The theme for the 2017 session of the Economic and Social Council is “Eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions through promoting sustainable development, expanding opportunities and addressing related challenges”.

The HLS will be held from 17 to 20 July 2017 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 address specifically, steps toward implementation, follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to track progress at all levels and ensure that no one is left behind.

The HLS includes the three-day ministerial meeting of the High-Level Political Forum on sustainable development (HLPF), convened under the auspices of the Council. For information about the High-level Political Forum please click here.
