Baku, July 22, AZERTAC

In closing the High-level Segment of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), President Inga Rhonda King assured participants that the session had contributed significantly to advancing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, according to the UN’s official website.

By “increasing awareness and galvanizing efforts towards empowerment, inclusiveness and equality”, the entire ECOSOC system has worked “to address gaps and challenges, provide integrated policy recommendations, and review progress”, which are all “at the heart of the 2030 Agenda”, she said.

The ECOSOC president pointed out that the High-level Segment also included the ministerial segment of the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF), which she referred to as “the premier global forum for follow-up and review of sustainable development”.

“I am confident that our deliberations on the theme during this cycle have moved us all to double our efforts to accelerate implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals”, Inga Rhonda King added.

She flagged the discussions underscoring the need for an integrated approach to achieve the SDGs and “to reduce inequality, end deprivations, and leave no one behind.”
