The 2007 thematic discussion focused on the theme of “Strengthening efforts at all level to promote pro-poor sustained economic growth, including through equitable macro-economic policies”. Under this overarching theme, two parallel roundtables were held: “Growth, poverty reduction and equity – emerging paradigm” and “Coherence and coordination of macroeconomic policies-global and regional frameworks”n on 2 July 2007.
The Economic and Social Council also organized an Informal High-Level Roundtable on “Emerging challenges to efforts to eradicate poverty and hunger”. The Roundtable focused on the major emerging development concerns posed by climate change, desertification and the AIDS pandemic.
Informal summaries of the three events are available on the High-level Segment Informal Summaries page.For further information please contact Ms. Chikako Takase, Chief, Policy Coordination Section, Office of ECOSOC Support and Coordination at firstname.lastname@example.org
