Resolution 1818 of the Economic and Social Council authorized the establishment of the Economic Commission for Western Asia (ECWA) on August 9 of that year (LV). Its objectives were to boost economic activity in member nations, improve intergovernmental coordination, and advance development.
In accordance with Economic and Social Council resolution 69/1985 of July 1985, the Commission was renamed the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) to reflect the social component of its activities.
ESCWA’s initial offices were in Beirut (1974–1982), then it relocated to Baghdad (1982–1991), then to Jordan (1991–1997), before returning to Beirut, where it has been ever since.
