- Sustainable development — Developing countries
This chapter examines the UN’s role in improving economic wellbeing. One of the UN’s main purposes is to achieve international cooperation in solving international economic problems. To this end, the UN Charter recognizes a link between economic wellbeing and peaceful and friendly relations between states. Economic wellbeing is pursued through principal and subsidiary organs as well as specialized agencies. The discussions cover the Second Committee of the General Assembly; the role of the Economic and Social Council and United Nations Development Programme in economic wellbeing; the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development; the United Nations Industrial Development Organization; financing for development; sustainable development; poverty eradication; and groups of countries in special situations.
