UN chief – The world is at a “critical juncture” and it must prevent crises

United Nations (AP) – UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has warned that the world is heading in the wrong direction and that “normal trade” will lead to the collapse of the global system and a “critical time” for its eternal future. Crisis. He said changing the education could mean a greener and safer future.

The United Nations says governments and peoples of the world must reverse today’s dangerous trend and choose “development conditions.”

He said the world was in a state of “extreme stress” and that the COVID-19 epidemic was a wake-up call. A life-threatening emergency.

Guterres said that this “paralysis” was beyond the protection of Côte d’Ivoire-Climate Crisis and that “natural warfare and biodiversity”, “uncontrolled equality” and the unity of communities and technological advances “protected us from unintended consequences.”

In a more chaotic and insecure world, they point to poverty, hunger, and gender inequality after decades of collapse, nuclear war and climate change on human life and the planet, and inequality, discrimination, and injustice. Bringing people to the forefront of “conspiracy theories and lies that burn deep divisions in communities”.

In his report to the General Assembly and to the press conference, Guterres’ vision for a “green and safe world” is driven by the principle of “working together.” Each other and no community or country, no matter how powerful, can solve the challenges alone.

The report – “Our Joint Agenda” is a response to last year’s 75th United Nations General Assembly and the request of 193 member states to address challenges. Global governance.

In the modern world, Guterres asserts that “international decision-making is based on the immediate consequences of ignoring the long-term consequences of decisions.”

He noted that multidisciplinary institutions were “very weak and fragmented for today’s global challenges and threats.”

What is needed is that Guterres is not a new multi-stakeholder bureaucracy, but one of the most relevant multi-stakeholder institutions of the 21st century, including the United Nations 2.0.

“We need a multi-party system with teeth,” he said.

In a report on the “vision” to change the world, Guterres said urgent action was needed to protect the planet’s “most precious” assets from the oceans to the outer space, to make them livable and to satisfy the aspirations of people everywhere. Health and wellness.

He called for an urgent global immunization plan implemented by the task force.

The report addresses not only all of these issues in 2023, but also calls for a future international conference on “strengthening digital technology and global governance and managing future risks and crises.” he said.

Guterres is also looking at a new peace agenda, including nuclear disarmament, cyber warfare and lethal weapons, which he calls one of the most ingenious inventions of humanity.

The Secretary-General said that the new United Nations Future Laboratory would publish regular reports on “megawatts and disasters.”

He said the COVID-19 epidemic also exposed shortcomings in the global financial system.

To address these shortcomings and integrate the global financial system with other global priorities, Guterres is one of the 20 leading economies in the G20 every two years, the head of the United Nations Economic and Social Council, the heads of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank and UN Secretary-General.

He also called for redress in the big blind spot where we measure total growth or prosperity.

“My report calls for new measures that value the lives and well-being of many over the short term,” Guterres said.

He also called for a new emergency forum that would address the crisis of governments, the United Nations, international financial institutions, civil society, the private sector and others.

Guterres also proposed a “redemption” of the much-completed UN Council, which would serve as a platform for “the creation of a governmental body for generations to come” to address the needs of the entire human family, present and future.

With a new focus on youth in the new world and future generations, Guterres intends to appoint a special envoy to the next generation to ensure the benefits of the 21st century and to establish a new United Nations Youth Office.

According to Guterres, much of the world’s instability stems from poverty and inequality.

To address the threat of social instability, the United Nations has proposed a series of measures to “provide universal health coverage, education, housing, decent work and income protection to all, everywhere.”

Guterres suggested that in 2025, the World Social Conference be held with international efforts to address these issues and repair the social fabric.

The Secretary-General also proposed international action to address the concepts of data destruction and conspiracy and to promote truth, science, and “honesty” in public discourse.

“We have to make a mistake again,” Guterres said.
