The four topics UN and multilateral efforts should focus

From our daily mail.

In his speech to the World Affairs Council on Oct. 26 in Seattle, the Secretary General of UN spoke about four major areas where the UN and multilateral efforts could make a difference:
climate change,
nuclear nonproliferation,
poverty, human rights and
peace and security.
At the 10th UNGIWG Meeting held in Bonn last week, also representatives of the UN agencies addressing these topics using GI/GIS were assembled. A prerecorded video message of the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon was also presented from the webpage of the UN SG using Internet connection. For details, please click on the header.
