UN chief highlights need for climate action, pandemic response, in commemorating 75th anniversary of the General Assembly – UN News

In his first major speech of the year, the UN Secretary-General underlined the need for global cooperation to address today’s challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change.

The General Assembly is familiarly known as the world’s town hall.

The Secretary-General has frequently spoken of how the crisis has exposed inequalities and fragilities, both within and among countries, including threats to women and girls.

Mr. Guterres also reported that a global survey conducted last year revealed climate action is a top priority for the world’s people, more than 1.5 million of whom shared their hopes and fears as part of events marking the UN’s 75th anniversary.

The Secretary-General underscored the importance of a unified UN Security Council, and for major powers to overcome their differences and work together.
