ECOSOC Annual Ministerial Review 2008

Welcome to Stakeholder Forum's online home for stakeholders in preparation for the 2008 ECOSOC Annual Ministerial Review, to be held in New York on 2nd-3rd July.

Stakeholder Forum has been asked by ECOSOC and the UK Department for International Development (DFID) to help facilitate global stakeholder inputs to the Annual Ministerial Review in 2008, which this year will focus on 'Implementing the internationally agreed goals and commitments in regard to sustainable development.'

This website provides background information for stakeholders on the role and function of the AMR, and also provides all the necessary materials for stakeholders to engage with the process.

To find out more about the stakeholder consultation being co-ordinated by Stakeholder Forum, and to download a questionnaire to contribute to the process, please click here.
