9th session of Expert Mechanism on the Right to Development

1 May - 2 May

01 – 02 May 2024


The session was shortened due to UN liquidity crisis.

The ninth session of the Expert Mechanism on the Right to Development will take place in Conference Room 6, in UN HQ New York, on Wednesday 1 May and Thursday 2 May 2024, 10am to 1pm and 3pm to 6pm Eastern Time (ET).

Over the past years, the EMRTD has undertaken rigorous studies and dialogues on various dimensions of the right to development (RTD). At its ninth session, the EMRTD aims to assess its progress and foster meaningful exchanges of viewpoints and experiences among Member States and key stakeholders. Our deliberations will be enriched by insights from recent and ongoing negotiations, including the Third South Summit, the forthcoming Financing for Development Forum, the Conferences on Small Islands Developing States and on Landlocked Developing Countries, in addition to the Summit of the Future.

Recognizing the urgent challenges posed by multiple crises, the EMRTD remains steadfast in providing tangible contributions to support Member States in their negotiations. Our collective goal is to drive progress toward realizing the 2030 Agenda and ensuring the RTD for all.

The session will feature a general debate, a discussion on proposed studies, and four interactive dialogues with representatives from Member States, civil society, practitioners, and experts. We are committed to ensuring that these four dialogues are concrete, drawing upon effective experiences, good practices, and strategies to address pressing development needs.
