Context and objective
The Integration Dialogues collect and share inputs from Member States, ECOSOC subsidiary bodies, other UN organizations and relevant stakeholders, with an emphasis on cutting-edge issues of global concern. Policy makers from national ministries attend to exchange experiences and discuss strategies to advance integration of the three pillars. Key findings inform action-oriented recommendations for follow up.
The 2021 Integration Segment is chaired by his Excellency Ambassador Juan Sandoval Mendiolea, Vice-President of ECOSOC (Mexico), and will discuss the combined UN system’s analysis and policy proposals on the 2021 theme of ECOSOC and HLPF on “Sustainable and resilient recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic that promotes the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development: building an inclusive and effective path for the achievement of the 2030 Agenda in the context of the decade of action and delivery for sustainable development".
