The year 2015 was remarkable for international development cooperation, the United Nations and the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA). At the backdrop of UN celebrations of its 70th anniversary, three landmark achievements were reached, namely: the Addis Ababa Action Agenda on Financing for Development, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
