UN ESCAP: Role and experiences of a UN regional commission in supporting VNR processes (2020)

The Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) is the largest inter- governmental platform in the region, with 53 member states and 9 associate members, ranging from Turkey to the Pacific Islands. ESCAP’s strategic focus is to foster implementation of the 2030 Agenda, including VNR processes. It does so by performing its key functions of (i) supporting intergovernmental processes, (ii) providing advisory services and capacity building and (iii) making knowledge products available. A fourth initiative, the twinning programme, was added in 2019 to promote peer learning on VNRs. Dr Katinka Weinberger, Chief of ESCAP’s Environment and Development Policy Section, explains how the different programmes work.
