Regional economic and social activities

The five United Nations regional commissions continued in 2002 to provide technical cooperation, including advisory services, to their member States, promote programmes and projects, and provide training to enhance national capacity building in various sectors. Four of them held regular sessions during the year: the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), the Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) and the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC). The Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) met in special session to revise the 2002- 2005 medium-term plan and the 2002-2003 programme of work and priorities. Its next regular session was to be held in 2003.
