The 61st session of the Commission for Social Development (CSocD61) will take place from 6 to 15 February 2023 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. The Commission is the advisory body responsible for the social development pillar of global development. The priority theme of this year's session is “Creating full and productive employment and decent work for all as a way of overcoming inequalities to accelerate the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”.
By inviting the UN Regional Commissions and relevant UN organizations, the main objective of the interactive dialogue is to link the work of the Commission for Social Development with regional and national actions for enhanced coordination and strengthened policy coherence to promote the creation of full and productive employment and decent work for all, and assist Member States to overcome inequalities to accelerate the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
The dialogue will facilitate an exchange between Member States, senior officials of the UN entities, and relevant stakeholders, including representatives of civil society, of views, policies, and strategies relevant to the priority theme of the 61st session of the Commission.
