The 2023 Partnership Forum of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) will be held on 31 January 2023, back-to-back with the Council’s Coordination Segment, under the main theme of the 2023 ECOSOC and the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), “Accelerating the recovery from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at all levels.”
The 2023 ECOSOC Partnership Forum will be focused on the exchange of new ideas, expectations and priorities for the work ahead for ECOSOC and the HLPF on the theme. The 2023 ECOSOC Partnership Forum will also showcase and discuss how forward-looking actions and innovative partnerships forged by countries and all relevant stakeholders can mobilize commitments and actions to advance the 2030 Agenda and address new challenges.
