Introduction

The Economic and Social Council, under the authority of the General Assembly, is the United Nations organ which coordinates the economic and social work of the United Nations and its system of organizations. The Council has 54 members and until 1991 held the following sessions each year: a short organizational session in New York in January, the first regular session in New York in May, the second regular session in Geneva in July. The rules of procedure of the Council were amended by resolution 1992/2 and from 1992 on, the Council held an organizational session in February in New York and one substantive session, with one "high-level segment" a year; the substantive session took place in alternate years in New York and Geneva between May and July. The General Assembly, in its resolution 68/1, requested the Economic and Social Council to adjust its programme of work to a July-to-July cycle. The Council continues to have one substantive and one organizational session. From 2014, the Council holds a substantive session in New York and the humanitarian affairs segment alternates between New York and Geneva.
