December 9 According to a report on the United Nations website, recently, United Nations Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed pointed out at the special session of the General Assembly on the response to the novel coronavirus epidemic that the United Nations is mobilizing $28 billion to provide vaccines for all.
It is reported that from December 3rd to 4th, the 75th special session of the United Nations General Assembly on the novel coronavirus epidemic was held in the “cloud”. At the meeting, UN Under-Secretary-General Amina Mohammed said that the United Nations is mobilizing the $28 billion needed to provide vaccines for all people, regardless of their wealth status or location, and to assist parties in implementing inclusive recovery plans.
She said: “This session is taking place at a critical moment. If we make the right decisions now, we can meet humanitarian needs, re-track development, accelerate the achievement of sustainable development goals, and make life for all people with dignity and opportunity on a safe and healthy planet.”
On the other hand, World Food Programme Executive Director Beasley warned that “catastrophic conditions will occur” in 2021, humanitarian needs are expected to double, and famines may occur in about 12 countries. Because the war caused hunger, the fighting must stop.
Beasley urged countries to accelerate the pace of action. He said: “We can avoid instability, famine and migration. But we must get there as soon as possible.”
He stressed: “If we have a strategic vision and invest funds in these specific and huge challenges before us, I believe that we can survive 2021 while rebuilding the economy with the effective use of vaccines, so that we can build a better world and 2030. Achieve zero hunger.
The zero hunger goal is one of the 17 sustainable development goals adopted by 193 United Nations Member States five years ago. The sustainable development goals provide a blueprint for ending poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring that all people live in peace and prosperity.
Steiner, Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme, stressed that these goals are still “absolutely relevant” because “they are guidelines for action to guide us out of this crisis”.
