ECO Region and Global Agenda

The ECO intergovernmental machinery and institutional arrangements, as one of the most prominent regional economic groups in the world, are vividly interacting with the emerging and trending global issues, particularly the UN-sponsored global agendas. It was the case from the 1960s, when ECO’s predecessor - RCD - began to exist close to the “development paradigm” of the day, and continues to be the case in the post-2015 development agenda. The ECO Member States, individually and collectively as a region, are involved in policymaking as well as operational frameworks to react to the challenges/opportunities exposed by the global issues of regional and national impacts. These include, among others, climatic changes, natural hazards, and sectors and themes addressed by the SDGs.
