Agriculture and food system transformation needed on pathway to zero hunger – Ban

INTERNATIONAL, 22 September 2016 – While the world has seen some progress on combatting the root causes of hunger and malnutrition, the challenge of providing the fundamental right to adequate food to all people must remain a priority, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today, urging Member States to continue to work together to tackle the problem. “It is unacceptable in a world of plenty that nearly 800 million people still suffer from hunger,” the UN chief said at a high-level event on “Pathways to Zero Hunger” at UN Headquarters this afternoon. “This represents a collective moral and political failure,” he added. The event, co-organized by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the World Food Programme (WFP), seeks...

Greater focus on women’s empowerment can help achieve Global Goals – UN chief

INTERNATIONAL, 22 September 2016 – Gender equality remains the greatest human rights challenge of our time, and one way to achieve the goal is by empowering women to have greater choices economically and control over their lives, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon declared today, urging the international community to spearhead efforts that provide opportunities for women and girls. “I look forward to a time when all societies everywhere can reap the benefits of gender equality,” said the Secretary-General at the high-level panel on women’s economic empowerment event today at UN Headquarters in New York, co-organized by the panel’s secretariat and UN Women. I firmly believe in a ‘50-50 planet’ “As I said this week to the General Assembly – and the world – I am proud to call...

Security Council adopts resolution on countering terrorist threats to civil aviation

INTERNATIONAL, 22 September 2016 – The global aviation system is of vital importance to economic development and prosperity, and all States must strengthen, both individually and collectively, aviation security measures, in order to secure a stable and peaceful global environment, the United Nations Security Council declared today. Adopting resolution 2309 (2016) at a meeting, this morning, on threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts, the Council called on States to work within the UN’s International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to ensure that its international security standards are reviewed and adapted to effectively address the threat posed by terrorist targeting of civil aviation. Expressing particular concern that terrorist groups are actively seeking ways to defeat or circumvent aviation security, the 15-member body...

Sanitation initiative in south-eastern Haiti shows promising results – UNICEF

INTERNATIONAL, 22 September 2016 – A sanitation initiative in south-eastern Haiti has shown encouraging results, with a major reduction in the number of water-borne infections for local residents, according to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). “Five localities in this region have been declared open defecation free (ODF), which marks progress in the prevention of cholera and other water-borne diseases in the area,” the UNICEF Representative in the country, Marc Vincent, told the UN News Centre. “In the area of sanitation we have come a long way and there is still a long way to go,” he added. “For UNICEF, we are active in 120 communities and, in total, more than 20,000 people in the country now benefit from living in an ODF...

INTERNATIONAL, 22 September 2016 – As the international community continues to work towards achieving the core humanitarian responsibilities agreed to at the World Humanitarian Summit this past May, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today presented a road map to promote accountability for commitments made and report on progress attained. “The Summit confirmed we cannot continue with business as usual,” the UN chief said at a high-level side event entitled “Beyond the World Humanitarian Summit: Advancing the Agenda for Humanity,” taking place today at UN Headquarters in New York, during which he presented his report on the outcome of the Summit. “Humanitarian crises need political solutions. Greater and longer-term investment is needed to build stable and inclusive societies,” he added. At the historic Summit in Istanbul, Turkey, governments,...
