September Goal of the Month - UNGA 75 Edition

Time for Solutions and Solidarity

The 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly is unlike any other in the Organization’s history, occurring in the midst of a crisis unlike any other in our lifetimes: the COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s Assembly offers a unique platform at a pivotal moment. The pillars of our world, already unsteady, have been shaken to the core by the coronavirus. Everything the United Nations stands for and works for – peace, progress and human rights – is in jeopardy. As we strive to respond and recover, international cooperation has never been more important.

A series of high-level meetings will address the Sustainable Development Goals, the climate crisis, the alarming decline in biodiversity, financing for development, and the effort to produce a COVID-19 vaccine accessible to all as a global public good that keeps us all safe. Member States will also mark the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action to reaffirm the central role of women and reinforce our work to eliminate gender-based violence.
