In a world facing famine, major migration and conflict exacerbated by COVID-19, the UN, including its foundational body the Economic and Social Council, known as ECOSOC, is “vital” to promote global peace and cooperation. 

That’s according to Munir Akram, Pakistan’s Ambassador to the UN, who was elected ECOSOC President in July.
