2022 ECOSOC Partnership Forum

The 2022 ECOSOC Partnership Forum was held on 2 February 2022 on the “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 participated, 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 debated solutions and policies to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic guided by the SDGs. They (a) exchanged 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) shined 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 was held in a hybrid format, back-to-back with the Council’s new coordination segment (3-4 February) that guides and coordinates the work of the UN and ECOSOC system, as decided by the General Assembly (A/RES/75/290A).

As part of the preparatory process for the Partnership Forum, a global online stakeholder consultation has been set up to solicit views, experiences and proposals from all stakeholders and make them widely available in advance of the event. UNDESA has published a summary report to showcase the main findings here.

Based on the recent resolution adopted by the General Assembly on the strengthening of the ECOSOC(A/RES/75/290A), the 2022 ECOSOC Partnership Forum will be held on 2 February.

The Partnership Forum will bring together governments and other stakeholders to debate new ideas and solutions on the main theme of the ECOSOC and the HLPF “Building back better from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) while advancing the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”. In order to support inclusive preparations, the ECOSOC President, H.E. Ambassador Collen Kelapile, has established an informal Multi-Stakeholder Advisory Group to advise him on the organization of the 2022 ECOSOC Partnership Forum.

On 15-16 December 2021, Members of the Multi-Stakeholders Advisory Group attended a virtual two-day Expert Group Meeting (EGM) where Members provided inputs to the Partnership Forum programme, recommendations for the organization and format, and shared ideas for the promotion and mobilization of actions to be showcased at the Forum. The meeting was organized by UNDESA and the UN Foundation.

A summary of the discussions during the Expert Group Meeting can be found HERE
