ECA - a UN regional Commission

Established by the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations (UN) in 1958 as one of the UN's five regional commissions, ECA's mandate is to promote the economic and social development of its member States, foster intra-regional integration, and promote international cooperation for Africa's development.

Made up of 54 member States, and playing a dual role as a regional arm of the UN and as a key component of the African institutional landscape, ECA is well positioned to make unique contributions to address the Continent’s development challenges.



ECA and its Sub regional offices

In 1963, the Economic Commission for Africa has opened  a representation in each one of the five sub regions, in order to better serve its African Member States. Since then, to better reflect the changes introduced in the programme functions, these representations were successively renamed: Multinational Programming and Operational Centres (MULPOCs) in 1979; Sub-regional Development Centres in 1997; and ECA Offices in 2002.

These five ECA’s Subregional Offices are located in Yaounde, Kigali, Rabat, Lusaka and Niamey.
