President's Perspective

It has been almost a year and a half since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Everyone around the globe has the same question in mind: “When will the world put an end to this pandemic so that we can resume our normal lives?”
Today is a special anniversary as we mark 75 years of collective work since the UN came into existence. In September this year, we also reflected on five years since the adoption of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which represented a new vision of development linking people, planet and prosperity and raised financing needs from billions to trillions.
