20th Commemoration of the Rwanda Genocide


Apr 07, 2014

20th Commemoration of the Rwanda Genocide

The UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for the twentieth commemoration of the Rwanda genocide:


This year marks 20 years since the genocide in Rwanda. Around the world people are coming together to “Remember, Unite, Renew”.

We will always remember the more than 800,000 innocent people so brutally murdered as we pay tribute to the bravery and resilience of the survivors. We draw inspiration from the ability of the Rwandan people to unite and show that reconciliation is possible even after a monumental tragedy. And we pay tribute to their determination to renew their country and pave the way to a secure and prosperous future.

I am honoured to be invited to take part in the commemoration and will be in Rwanda to mark this solemn moment with the people of the country. I will encourage the people and Government of Rwanda to continue promoting the inclusive spirit needed for healing and reconciliation, and to deepen respect for human rights. This will set the country firmly on course for a peaceful future and benefit the wider Great Lakes region, which continues to cope with the impact of the genocide.

Together, let us commit to remember, unite and renew for the people of Rwanda and for our actions to prevent genocide around the world.

International Day for Mine Awareness & Assistance in Mine Action


Apr 04, 2014

International Day for Mine Awareness & Assistance in Mine Action.

On 8 December 2005, the General Assembly declared that 4 April of each year shall be observed as the International Day for Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action.

It called for continued efforts by States, with the assistance of the United Nations and relevant organizations, to foster the establishment and development of national mine-action capacities in countries where mines and explosive remnants of war constitute a serious threat to the safety, health and lives of the civilian population, or an impediment to social and economic development at the national and local levels.

World Water Day


Mar 22, 2014

World Water Day

In 2014, the UN System – working closely with its Member States and other relevant stakeholders – is collectively bringing its attention to the water-energy nexus, particularly addressing inequities, especially for the 'bottom billion' who live in slums and impoverished rural areas and survive without access to safe drinking water, adequate sanitation, sufficient food and energy services. It also aims to facilitate the development of policies and crosscutting frameworks that bridge ministries and sectors, leading the way to energy security and sustainable water use in a green economy. Particular attention will be paid to identifying best practices that can make a water- and energy-efficient 'Green Industry' a reality.

International Women's Day


Mar 08, 2014

International Women's Day

International Women's Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. It is an occasion for looking back on past struggles and accomplishments, and more importantly, for looking ahead to the untapped potential and opportunities that await future generations of women.

In 1975, during International Women's Year, the United Nations began celebrating International Women's Day on 8 March. Two years later, in December 1977, the General Assembly adopted a resolution proclaiming a United Nations Day for Women's Rights and International Peace to be observed on any day of the year by Member States, in accordance with their historical and national traditions. In adopting its resolution, the General Assembly recognized the role of women in peace efforts and development and urged an end to discrimination and an increase of support for women's full and equal participation.

International Women's Day first emerged from the activities of labour movements at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across Europe.

In September 2014, the Open Working Group established by the Rio+20 Outcome document will present its proposal of the next round of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to the United Nations General Assembly. Although progress has been made toward reducing extreme poverty, many areas need improvement and implementation. Join us for a conversation with UN Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information Peter Launsky-Tieffenthal on the next set of MDGs. The discussion will focus on lessons learned from the MDGs, new goals to be included, prospects for a stand-alone goal on governance, and the role of private sector and philanthropy in the post-2015 development agenda.

Mr. Launsky-Tieffenthal was appointed by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon as the Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information in 2012. He also serves as Coordinator for Multilingualism, overseeing relevant issues throughout the Secretariat.
