UN ESCWA, now headquartered in Beirut, was established in 1973 to stimulate economic activity in its member countries and strengthen cooperation in promoting development. APN has forged a strong partnership with ESCWA through collaborative activities and contribution in expert consultation meetings, both as a speaker and participant. In these meetings, APN provides feedback to the High-level Political Forum that tracks the implementation of sustainable development goals.

Furthermore, APN and ESCWA were selected as Co-chairs for the Arab League Working Group for Eliminating Hunger in Conflict-Inflicted Countries.
