The Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) serves as the United Nations’ regional hub, promoting cooperation among countries to achieve inclusive and sustainable development. As the largest regional intergovernmental platform with 53 member States and 9 associate members, ESCAP has emerged as a strong regional think-tank, offering countries sound analytical products that shed light on the evolving economic, social and environmental dynamics of the region. The Commission’s strategic focus is to deliver on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which it does by reinforcing and deepening regional cooperation and integration in order to advance connectivity, financial cooperation, and market integration. The research and analysis undertaken by ESCAP coupled with its policy advisory services, capacity building and technical assistance to governments aims to support countries’ sustainable and inclusive
development ambitions.
