ESCAP Briefing Programme





Our briefing programme provides an opportunity for your group to receive an overview of the United Nations and its work as well as share insights into ESCAP’s wide-ranging agenda.

The goal of our briefings is to further an understanding of and an appreciation for the work of the United Nations in the Asia-Pacific region. This provides an invaluable educational opportunity tailored specifically to your group.

You may request a briefing when planning to visit the ESCAP headquarters in Bangkok, Thailand.
