Candidature of the Republic of Slovenia to the UN Economic and Social Council for the period 2023 - 0225

The Government of the Republic of Slovenia has decided to present the candidature to the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) for the period 2023-2025 at the elections to be held during the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly in 2022 in New York. This is the first candidature of Slovenia to ECOSOC. Slovenia attaches great importance to the work of ECOSOC and its efforts related to the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development, especially to the adequate and efficient follow-up and review of progress in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement. We have already been constructively engaged in the fields, covered by the Council, and would like to contribute more actively to the fulfilment of the important mandate entrusted to ECOSOC.
