ESCAP Briefing Programme




Children at ESCAP during a visit


Our briefing programme provides an opportunity for your group to receive an overview of the United Nations and its work as well as share insights into ESCAP’s wide-ranging agenda.

The goal of our briefings is to further an understanding of and an appreciation for the work of the United Nations in the Asia-Pacific region. This provides an invaluable educational opportunity tailored specifically to your group.

You may request a briefing when planning to visit the ESCAP headquarters in Bangkok, Thailand.
