Introduction to ECOSOC

The Economic and Social Council of the United Nations also called the ECOSOC is one of the six main organs of the UN established by the UN Charter, 1946 which involves debate, innovating thinking of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), policy analysis, policy review, recommendations on various economic/ social issues and implementations for the same.

Agenda: Expanding economic opportunities and reducing unemployment in the developing world. 

Talking about the three dimensions of the sustainable development- economic, social and environmental, ECOSOC has stood out as an effective wing for providing overall guidance in implementations of policies globally reaching out to millions in terms of economic uplifting and financial progression. Reducing unemployment has been a raging challenge for the world especially when it comes to developing countries. Various international communities have taken up the responsibilities to bring out the solution to the global crisis of unemployment and have worked within their potentials time and again.

A factor being a hurdle for the expansion of economic opportunities is the acceptance of various social and economic groups’ active participation in a wider forum of policy analysis, implementation, and education. Overall development is impossible to achieve if a certain section of the society is withdrawn from an active debate. The modern twenty-first-century approach to root out poverty is by building a ladder to ensure that every citizen of this world has a reasonable opportunity to gain higher education, start a business, create a viable financial status for themselves and their families. If we talk in terms of economy, some of the most displaced groups such as low-income families, need slots to trigger development. Enterprising women play a key role in expanding the economy. Introducing women to the various sectors of the economy, improving their access to skill development, expanding their reach in different jobs etc. can definitely enhance the employment rates in one particular section.  

When it comes to expanding economic opportunities in developing countries, states have to be very subtle with their business policies. An international investment-welcoming state is likely to witness more economic growth, hence the World Bank Index for ease of doing business tells about the nations willingness to promote international trade and commerce. By exploring between international development, business, and corporate social responsibility (CSR) communities in order to establish links between private sector development and poverty alleviation, the ease of increasing employment in developing nations can be swiftly escalated. Overall economic development comes with an improvement in the health care center, financial services center, tourism sector etc. With the ECOSOC’s annual High-Level Segment including High-Level Political Forums and Development Cooperation Forums, the wing provides political leadership, guidance, recommendation for sustainable development and reviews trends and progress in development cooperation.
