    • ECO Region and Global Agenda
      As one of the biggest regional economic group in the world, the ECO intergovernmental machinery and institutional arrangements are vividly interacting with the emerging and trending global issues, particularly the UN sponsored global agendas. It was the case from the 1960s, when ECO’s predecessor - RCD - began to exist in close proximity to the “development paradigm” of the day, and continues to be the case in the post 2015 development agenda. ECO Member States, individually and collectively as a region, are involved in policy–making as well as operational frameworks to react to the challenges/opportunities exposed by the global issues of regional and national impacts. These include, among others, climatic changes, natural hazards, and sectors and themes addressed by the SDGs.
