2016 year - The Year of Respect for Heritage, Reformation of Motherland

 

Turkmenistan elected to the Governing Council of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT)

On April 8, 2015 organizational session of the Economic and Social Council of the UN (ECOSOC) began its work. On the first day, elections were held to the subsidiary bodies of the Council. 

In the course of the elections, members of the Economic and Social Council elected Turkmenistan by unanimous decision to the Board of Governors of the UN Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT) for the period of 2016-2019 years.

As is known, the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT) is a key body within the UN system to achieve international cooperation in the field of sustainable urban development, the promotion of individual countries or regions in solving the problems of human settlements and infrastructure. In 2001, the Commission on Human Settlements was transformed into the Governing Council of UN-HABITAT, which became a subsidiary organ of the UN General Assembly to report to it through the ECOSOC. The Board of Governors consists of 58 Member States elected by the Economic and Social Council of the UN (ECOSOC) for a four-year period.

In addition, during the above session, Turkmenistan was re-elected as a member of the UN Commission on Population and Development in the new period of 2016-2019 years.

Membership in this two UN structures Turkmenistan considers from the standpoint of the effective use by international community of available infrastructure capabilities of Turkmenistan to enhance the activities of the various UN bodies directly in the regions of Central Asia and the Caspian Basin. 

Election of Turkmenistan once in two important organs of one of the basic structures of the United Nations reaffirms the efficacious role of international initiatives of President of Turkmenistan in addressing global issues of sustainable development.
