Second Committee of the General Assembly

New York
07 October - 13 December, 2013

The Second Committee is expected to start its work on 9 October 2013 at UN Headquarters, with an opening address by UN DESA Under-Secretary-General Mr. Wu Hongbo and a keynote address by a prominent economist.

The UN DESA Office for ECOSOC Support and Coordination (OESC) will coordinate the organization of several special events, subject to the approval of the incoming bureau. Proposed events include joint Second Committee/ECOSOC events on the future of employment; finding a path to delivering the MDGs; and inequality and the global outlook, with the participation of experts from Project LINK. Other proposed events are a briefing on the implementation of the Convention on Biodiversity, which was mandated by the Second Committee, as well as a panel discussion on strengthening vulnerability resilience of Small Island Developing States (SIDS), in preparation of the Third International Conference on SIDS.
