Global solutions to global challenges: ECOSOC Partnership Forum
Sustainable development for current and future generations has become the center of everything we do at the United Nations. That’s why the ECOSOC Partnership Forum will explore ways to promote partnerships for global solutions to global challenges as we move towards a sustainable future.
This year, the forum will focus on sustainable infrastructure development as a means for achieving these goals. Infrastructure development plays a catalytic role in fostering economic growth and employment, reducing poverty and inequality and facilitating development in all countries.
Over the years, the Partnership Forum has provided a platform for stakeholders from both civil society and the private sector to address cooperation for promoting opportunities, increased prosperity and sustainable development for all. It has grown to be an indispensable mechanism for overcoming the many challenges and bottlenecks to sustainable development for all.
ECOSOC’s 2017 Partnership Forum will take place at UNHQ in New York on Wednesday, 5 April 2017.
