One of the six principal organs of the United Nations system established by the UN Charter in 1945 is the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). It consists of 54 members of the United Nations, nominated by the General Assembly and coordinates economic, social and related work of the fourteen United Nations specialized agencies, functional commissions and five regional commissions. ECOSOC serves as the central forum for discussing international economic and social issues as well as for formulating policy recommendations addressed to Member States and the United Nations system.
