UN Commission of Social Development (CSocD) has announced its priority theme for their 58th meeting in 2020: “Affordable Housing and Social Protection for all to address Homelessness”.
We call for clear, global measurement of street homelessness; a shared goal to reduce and ultimately end street homelessness; and support for a global movement to spread effective strategies across member states.
Find resources to help you navigate homelessness at the UN, including events you or your organization can attend, information about homelessness in UN language and programming, and information around 2020’s Priority Theme.
2020 CSOCD BRIEFING
As a result of the meeting, member states drafted a resolution that has the power to shape future UN priorities. The Priority Theme Draft Resolution is to be adopted by the Economic and Social Council in June 2020, on the recommendation of the CSocD.
