UN: Global response to poverty and environmental goals so far weak

10.07.2019 13:11 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) — As of now, at the UN Headquarters (New York), the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) meeting (this year Jul 9–18) is taking place, UN Radio reports. It is to be admitted, the Forum meeting is to last within this year Jul 9–18. While speaking within the meeting, UN Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) chief, Liu Zhenmin, has launched a report written by UN Chief António Guterres. The Guterres report says the global response to realizing poverty and environmental goals agreed by world leaders within 2015 has not become strong enough, and though some certain actions had been taken by governments across the world «the most vulnerable people and countries continue to suffer the most». The Guterres report reminds that the 17 SDGs stimulate countries to mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change. The report tracks progress across 17 goals within the UN 193 Member States and largely takes a global view, however while many trends regarding the SDGs are common to all regions, there are significant regional differences. In meanwhile, Liu Zhenmin admiited that the clock for taking decisive action on climate change is ticking. He stressed the importance of strengthening international cooperation and multilateral action. «The challenges highlighted within this report are global problems that require global solutions. Just as problems are interrelated, the solutions to poverty, inequality, climate change and other global challenges are also interlinked,» Liu Zhenmin emphasized.
