Membership of the Commission on Science and Technology for Development

The Commission has forty-three Member States elected by ECOSOC for a term of four years. Experts nominated by their respective governments should possess the necessary qualifications and professional or scientific knowledge.

The Commission has:

  • Eleven members from African States

  • Nine members from Asia-Pacific States

  • Eight members from Latin American and Caribbean States

  • Five members from Eastern European States

  • Ten members from Western European and other States

At each session, the Commission elects a new Bureau (a Chairperson and four Vice-Chairpersons) for the next session. The Bureau assumes responsibilities for the forthcoming activities during the inter-sessional period.

On 5 December 2018 the Council elected the Dominican Republic for a four-year term beginning on 1 January 2019 and expiring on 31 December 2022. It postponed the election of one member from the African States and two from the Latin American and Caribbean States for the same term.
