The primary purpose of the ECOSOC Segment on Operational activities for development will be to explore initial ideas around the key elements of the comprehensive proposals requested from the Secretary-General; identify concrete steps to be undertaken by the UN development system at headquarters level; and elaborate on the necessary action needed at country-level.

        12:00 PM - 01:00 PM        Daily Press Briefing by the Spokesperson of the Secretary-General.

        01:15 PM - 02:30 PM        (CR.7) Driving Coherence and Partnership: Mainstreaming the Sustainable Development Goals in Strategic Planning.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’s commitment to ‘leave no one behind and reach those furthest behind first’ challenges the international community to move beyond a focus on meeting immediate needs in order to improve the lives of the most vulnerable and at risk populations. Successfully delivering on this collective outcome will depend on contributions from a wide range of humanitarian and development actors based on their comparative strength and capacity to deliver in a given context.
In this vein, the 2016 Quadrennial Comprehensive Policy Review (QCPR) resolution for the years 2017-2020 guides the UN development system towards strengthened coherence and efficiency to deliver on the 2030 Agenda.
By mainstreaming the Sustainable Development Goals into their strategic planning documents and engaging in results-oriented partnerships, UN entities are expected to translate the 2016 QCPR’s requirements into integrated support to governments through enhanced coordination of development, humanitarian assistance and peacebuilding efforts.
Building on WFP’s experience in formulating its Strategic Plan 2017-2021 the side event will explore avenues of leveraging inclusive and effective partnerships that incorporate the QCPR’s key objectives in the context of the 2030 Agenda.
Side event during the ECOSOC Operational Activities for Development Segment organized by the UN World Food Programme.

        09:00 AM - 11:30 AM        (GA Hall) The 41st Annual UNIS-UN Conference - Theme: 2017 Migration: Crossing the Lines.
This year’s conference topic will be Migration: Crossing the Line, which will focus on the global movement of people. This issue currently holds the international spotlight as migration has and will continue to impact countries around the globe through a variety of forms. The 2017 UNIS-UN international student conference will examine varying perspectives on the issues surrounding migration: the causes, individual experiences as well as the political and humanitarian responses to migration. As millions of people flee their countries to escape armed conflict, political turmoil and economic hardships, we will consider who is responsible for providing aid and to what extent. While we may not find express answers to these issues, we hope to lead a discussion that can result in a deeper understanding of global migration.
