Welcome to the United Nations | Department of Economic and Social Affairs

Note: For thematic classification of the workshop proposals, it was decided that a hybrid approach will be taken in regards to the sub-themes and the workshops, as workshop proposers will be given some potential sub- themes/issues to tag their workshop proposals with (below). They will also have the opportunity to write-in their own sub-themes/issues, thereby helping shape the programme more directly.
