By Zoila Palma: On June 7, the United Nations General Assembly met to elect new members of the UN’s Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) by secret ballot.

Belize won 1 of the 3 seats assigned to the Latin America and Caribbean region on the council for the term 2022 to 2024.

“The work of ECOSOC will be critical in ensuring that the global recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic is inclusive, sustainable, and green – aligned to Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and all internationally agreed development goals,” a statement from the Government noted.

In addition, the council’s work in the next few years will be integral to the success of the UN’s Decade of Action to deliver the SDGs.

The Economic and Social Council is 1 of 6 principal organs of the United Nations.

With 54 members, it is specifically responsible for economic and social affairs in the United Nations.

Its 32 subsidiary and related bodies include the Commission on Human Rights, the Commission on the Status of Women, and the Commission on Sustainable Development.

“Belize looks forward to assuming its ECOSOC seat in January 2022 and to contribute to advancing the development agenda of the United Nations,” the Government of Belize said.
