Did you know the U.N. also wants extra powers to govern in any kind of emergency?
The United Nations has a new emergency platform called “Our Common Agenda.”
There are 11 Policy Briefs on the themes of ‘Our Common Agenda’; 8 are published, 3 are ‘forthcoming.’
The Policy Briefs are as follows, local copies for posterity:
Towards a New Agenda for Peace (forthcoming)
Transforming Education (forthcoming)
United Nations 2.0 (forthcoming)
From the “Our Common Agenda Report” by the UN Secretary General António Guterres:
Our Common Agenda is an agenda of action, designed to strengthen and accelerate multilateral agreements – particularly the 2030 Agenda – and make a tangible difference in people’s lives.(Emphasis in original text)
Our Common Agenda contains recommendations across 4 broad areas for renewed solidarity between peoples and future generations, a new social contract anchored in human rights, better management of critical global commons, and global public goods that deliver equitably and sustainably for all.
Our Common Agenda presents the Secretary-General’s vision on the future of global cooperation through an inclusive, networked, and effective multilateralism.
