The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) was established in 1947 by ECOSOC. It is one of five regional commissions of the United Nations. UNECE's principal aim is economic cooperation through policy dialogue and negotiation. Endeavoring to solve multifaceted issues like the implementation of energy efficiency standards and strengthening national capacities for sustainable housing. This commission is at the forefront of developmental and economic policy-making and continues to be of major importance in the diverse European theatre. There are currently 56 member States located in Europe, North America, and Asia. However, all interested United Nations member States may participate in the work of UNECE. This committee will hold similar aims by exchanging and investigating possible future policies. For the first topic, Improving National Access to Fossil Fuels, member states should suggest ideas involving improved sourcing for energy, along with improving developments to individual member state energy grid security policy. The second topic, Reducing Repercussions in Foreign Investment, should focus on investigating possible negative repercussions of foreign investment and forming policies to mitigate them.
