The Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) is at the heart of the UN system to advance the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental. It is also responsible for the follow-up to major UN conferences and summits. ECOSOC is a gateway for UN partnerships and participation by civil society.

Over the course of the past years a series of resolutions have been adopted by ECOSOC on the economic and social repercussions of the Israeli occupation on the living conditions of the Palestinian population; on the situation of, and assistance to Palestinian women and on the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination.
