United Nations Economic and Social Council ECOSOC

It may coordinate the activities of the specialized agencies through consultation with and recommendations to such agencies and through recommendations to the General Assembly and to the members of the United Nations. (Article 63 of the UN Charter)

The UN Economic and Social Council has a central role in receiving the reports from the UN specialized agencies and from the functioning commissions. It is therefore hardly surprising that they have been given the role as the central mechanism for system-wide coordination in the UN system. ECOSOC has tended to deal with climate change in the context of the MDGs and reports from UNEP.
