LIVE – UNITED NATIONS DEBATE

September 22, 2022 88 Views

The theme of this debate stems from recognition that the world is at a critical moment in the history of the United Nations due to “crises”, including the COVID-19 pandemic, the war in Ukraine, humanitarian challenges of unprecedented nature, all in light of  “climate change” as well as growing concerns we have about threats to the global economy.

 

It is therefore necessary to find and focus on joint solutions from all countries to these issues and build a more “sustainable” and resilient world for all and for the generations to come.
