Executive Committee of Economic and Social Affairs Plus (ECESA Plus)
Coordination of UN System actions for the implementation of the Samoa Pathway takes place through the Executive Committee on Economic and Social (ECESA Plus). Its over fifty members developed a matrix for the follow up to SAMOA Pathway, focusing on mandates specifically directed at the United Nations system as well as on areas where the UN system is already engaged through its programmatic work. The UN Implementation Matrix, which is being continuously updated, serves as an accountability framework and as a working tool to promote and monitor progress.

ECESA Plus meets regularly to discuss Rio+20 follow-up including SIDS related matters. ECES Plus and IAGC are both convened by DESA and are mutually reinforcing.
