A high-level expert group meeting on “Promoting people’s empowerment in achieving poverty eradication, social integration and full employment and decent work for all” will be arranged in New York on 10-12 September
Organized by DESA’s Division for Social Policy and Development (DSPD), the meeting is part of the preparations for the 51st session of the Commission for Social Development, scheduled to take place in New York in February 2013.
The meeting is convened in the context of draft Resolution 1 in the Report of the Commission for Social Development in which the Economic and Social Council decided that the priority theme for the 2013-2014 review and policy cycle should be “Promoting empowerment of people in achieving poverty eradication, social integration and full employment and decent work for all”.
The outcomes of the meeting will provide important inputs to the work of the Commission, in particular contributing to the formulation of policies that have been shown to have a major impact on efforts to promote people’s empowerment.
