In response to the repeated requests of the host country that places a high premium on the visibility of UN Offices in local media outlets, the ENEA Office in June organized and hosted the first meeting of communications and public relations officers from the UN offices and international organizations located in Songdo, Republic of Korea. The objective of the meeting was to discuss communications-related matters among UN Offices in Songdo for knowledge sharing and initiating a platform for cooperation. Each UN office and international organization has an officer responsible for communications and outreach, and the meeting of communications officers on 9 June at the ENEA Office provided an opportunity for them to initiate a cooperation framework for media and communications activities.

The offices and organizations represented at the meeting included ESCAP-ENEA, ESCAP-Asian and Pacific Training Centre for Information and Communication Technology for Development (APCICT), UN Office for Sustainable Development (UNOSD), UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR), UN Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) and the World Bank.

The meeting shared their unique communications strategies and discussed how they may cooperate in order to better promote and publicize their events and work. The communications officers have agreed to meet once a quarter and tap into the media resources available in each office and organization to more systemically arrange media and outreach activities.
