As I reflect on the work of the Organization since I took office almost two years ago, I have seen yet again that one of the most valuable assets of the United Nations is its
capacity to operate as a convener of people, a proponent of ideas, a catalyst for action and a driver of solutions. As today’s problems grow ever more global, multilateralism is more important than ever.
The Charter of the United Nations provides a moral compass to promote peace, advance human dignity and prosperity and uphold human rights and the rule of law.
The narrative of each section of this report highlights key developments and trends as the Organization worked to advance those objectives over the past year.
