Global online consultation for 2022 ECOSOC Partnership Forum

 

Background

The 2022 ECOSOC Partnership Forum will be held on 2 February 2021 on the theme “Building back better from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) while advancing the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”. Multiple actors and stakeholders will participate, including countries, the United Nations system, including international financial institutions, as well as international organizations, parliamentarians, local governments, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, civil society, scientists, academia, women, youth and others.

Participants will debate solutions and policies to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic guided by the SDGs. They are expected to (a) exchange new ideas, expectations and priorities which should be explored further by the Council and the high-level political forum in the following months; and (b) shine the spotlight on forward-looking actions and partnerships by countries and all relevant stakeholders that can help recover from the pandemic and accelerate progress towards the 2030 Agenda.

The Partnership Forum will be held back-to-back with the Council’s new coordination segment that guides and coordinates the work of the UN and ECOSOC system, as decided by the General Assembly (A/RES/75/290A).

 

Global online stakeholder consultation 

To prepare for the Partnership Forum, a global online stakeholder consultation is being set up to solicit views, experiences and proposals from all stakeholders and make them widely available in advance of the event.

Objectives

The objective of the global online stakeholder consultation is to both mobilize stakeholders from different sectors around the ECOSOC Partnership Forum and to seek their inputs around two broad tracks:

  • Track 1: sharing views on action-oriented policy recommendations that could be discussed as a priority in ECOSOC and the HLPF around key issues related to building back better from the COVID-19 pandemic while implementing the 2030 Agenda, including on issues such as financing, social protection floors, and combating climate change; and
  • Track 2: gathering information about forward-looking actions by Governments and various stakeholders that are making an impact on the SDGs on the ground.

The online consultation will also compile names of potential stakeholders speakers for the 2022 ECOSOC Partnership Forum.
