DIALOGUE WITH THE EXECUTIVE SECRETARIES OF THE REGIONAL COMMISSIONS
In ECOSOC decision 2004/323 on regional cooperation, the Council decided to organize every year a dialogue with the Executive Secretaries of the Regional Commissions immediately after the High-level Segment of its Substantive Session. The dialogue was held on Monday, 7 July 2008 (10:00 AM - 1:00 PM).
The interactive dialogue, on the theme: “Regional aspects of the themes of the High-level Segment of the Economic and Social Council's 2008 substantive session”, provided regional perspectives on current challenges facing sustainable development in the different regions, including the ones arising from food and energy insecurity, and those related to rural development. In this context, the dialogue presented some policy options to meet those challenges, including through opportunities offered by financing for development and South-South Cooperation.
