The statements - summaries of oral statements or written statements on the themes of discussion - will be accepted from 17-28 March 2014 through the UN CSO Net website.

This opportunity allows NGOs to contribute to ECOSOC's deliberations on the global development agenda.

The 2014 HLS will take place from 7-11 July 2014, at UN Headquarters in New York, US, and focus on the theme, 'Addressing on-going and emerging challenges for meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in 2015 and for sustaining gains in the future.'
