ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL COUNCIL (ECOSOC)
The Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) oversees the economic and social work
undertaken within the UN system. Member countries debate economic and social issues, and
many different UN organizations that address these issues report to ECOSOC.
Unlike the General Assembly, which includes all 192 member states, ECOSOC has only 54
members. Member states are elected by the General Assembly, and are selected to represent each
region of the world. They serve three-year terms. Members create and vote on resolutions to
address global concerns; each resolution requires a simple majority to pass.
1) Investing in Sustainable Energy for Rural Areas
2) Promoting Sustainable Peace by Addressing the Root Causes of Conflict
