The ESCWA Communication and Information Unit (ECIU) acts as a liaison between the Commissions’ divisions and media institutions. ECIU is an instrumental link that allows proper exposure to the ESCWA intergovernmental meetings, expert group meetings, conferences, events related to international days and weeks, and the Commission’s studies and flagship reports.
The Unit also provides direct public outreach through new media such as Facebook in addition to the traditional media outputs. One of the priorities of ECIU is to offer information to schools and universities interested to learn more about the mandate of ESCWA in the region and its activities. This is usually done through visits and tours to the Commission’s headquarters in Beirut and through briefings conducted in educational institutions.
