January 09,2015   By:un.org

To tackle the inter-connected pillars in the coming year, the UN has to be better fit for purpose, and he outlined areas where reviews and improvements are taking place, including peace operations and peacebuilding, financing for humanitarian operations, modernizing the Secretariat and dealing with emerging challenges like cybersecurity.

As the United Nations enters the year marking its 70th anniversary, it is faced with huge responsibilities but also opportunity.

“If our work unfolds as it should, by the end of this year, our Organization will be enriched with a new vision for development, new ideas for the maintenance of peace and security, a renewed embrace of human rights, and a stronger United Nations to help bring it all to life,” he said.
