ECOSOC’s Integration Segment meets annually to help UN Member States and others map ways to achieve the three pillars of sustainable development—economic, social and environmental.

The sessions collect and share inputs from Member States, ECOSOC subsidiary bodies, other UN organizations and relevant stakeholders, with an emphasis on cutting-edge issues of global concern.

Policy makers from national ministries attend to exchange experiences and discuss strategies to advance integration of the three pillars. Key findings inform action-oriented recommendations for follow up.
