Cooperation between the United Nations and the Economic Cooperation Organization

The Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO) was granted observer status in the General Assembly at the forty-eighth session, in 1993 (resolution 48/2). The Assembly considered the item at its fiftieth to fifty-seventh and fifty-ninth sessions (resolutions 50/1, 51/21, 52/19, 53/15, 54/100, 55/42, 56/44, 57/38 and 59/4).

At its sixty-first session, the General Assembly invited the United Nations system and the international community to continue to provide technical assistance, as appropriate, to the States members of the Economic Cooperation Organization in developing and enhancing their early warning systems, preparedness, capacity for timely response and rehabilitation, with a view to reducing human casualties and mitigating the socio-economic impact of natural disasters and infectious diseases; and requested the Secretary-General to submit to the Assembly at its sixty-third session a report on the implementation of the resolution (resolution 61/12).
