The Economic and Social Council and the CND and CCPCJ

 

The CND and the CCPCJ are both subsidiary bodies of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), falling under the category of "functional commissions".

The work of ECOSOC and of the Commissions is linked through the agenda of the Council; the reports of the Commissions are considered by the Council during the General Segment of its substantive session each year, held toward the end of July, under the agenda item entitled "Social and human rights questions."

The report of each Commission is adopted at the end of their respective sessions, and includes a number of resolutions and decisions adopted by the Commissions or for adoption by the Council. These resolutions and decisions appear in the reports under the Chapter entitled "Matters calling for action by the Economic and Social Council or brought to its attention." Once adopted by the Council, these resolutions and decisions become ECOSOC resolutions and decisions and are given an ECOSOC symbol.  Please visit the Commissions' websites for drug-related and crime-related ECOSOC resolutions and decisions.

More information on the work of the Council in relation to the work of UNODC may be found on the webpage of the UNODC Liaison Office in New York.
