As part of reform of its intergovernmental machinery, the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), set up the Committee on Human Development and Civil Society (CHDCS) by resolution 826 (XXXII) of 8 May 1997. Its members are African experts drawn from governments, private sector and civil society groups. The main objective of the Committee was two-fold: first, to provide a forum for deepening policy dialogue and interface among government, private sector and civil society, and secondly, to enable ECA to draw on the opinions of experts from these three sectors.
