ECOSOC Partnership Forum 2023
The 2023 Partnership Forum of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) will be held on January 31, 2023, from 9:00 am to 5:45 pm (EDT), back-to-back with the Council’s Coordination Segment, at the United Nations headquarters in New York.
Under the main theme of the 2023 ECOSOC and the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), “Accelerating the recovery from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at all levels”, the 2023 ECOSOC Partnership Forum will bring together UN Member States and stakeholders – from civil society, the private sector, scientists, women, youth, local governments and many others – to discuss innovative efforts that are driving action on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to highlight the contributions that partnerships can make in this regard.
An analytical summary will be prepared to capture the key policy messages of the Forum along with the messages of the Coordination Segment, which will serve as an input to the July 2023 HLPF and the 2023 SDG Summit as well as the overall work of the ECOSOC and other key inter-governmental processes throughout 2023.
Prior to the Forum, the Partnership Exchange session will be held virtually on 30 January 2022, from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm, to share knowledge on the design and implementation of partnerships that contribute to the SDGs. For more information, please click here.
