Economic and Social Council 2017 Session, 45th Meeting (PM)
ECOSOC/6862 18 July 2017
Despite encouraging progress, the international community had yet to account for the millions of people who still wallowed in abject poverty and for whom the right to development remained but a dream, speakers said today as the ministerial segment of the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development continued.
