In fact, one of the main bodies of the United Nations is the Economic and Social Council, (ECOSOC) which deals with the issues identified in its name.

It's called a "Quadrennial Comprehensive Policy Review of operational activities for development, or QCPR which the UN General Assembly discussed on Monday.
