Headquartered in Santiago, Chile, the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) constitutes one of five regional economic commissions of the United Nations. It was established in 1948 in order to advocate the economic and social development of the region by taking actions such as increasing cooperation between its Member States and international organizations; conducting research and analyses and serving as an advisory service that offers technical support. Although the Commission was originally responsible merely for Latin America, a 1984 resolution increased its scope to cover the Caribbean nations as well. Currently, ECLAC has 45 Member States; 20 from Latin America, 13 from the Caribbean and 12 from outside the said region.
