The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) is the most representative deliberative and policy making organ of the United Nations. Its annual Session begins in September of every year, welcoming heads of state and government, as well as other senior government officials, to the UN Headquarters. The General Debate during the High-Level Week (HLW) is the highlight of every Session.
The 74th Session of UNGA will begin on 17 September, while the HLW will begin on 24 September. During the HLW, the General Debate, High-Level Political Forum, Climate Change Summit, High-Level Dialogue on Financing for Development, High-Level meeting on Universal Health Coverage, as well as the High-Level meeting to review progress made in addressing the priorities of Small Island Developing States (SIDS) through the implementation of the SIDS Accelerated Modalities of Action (SAMOA) Pathway will be held.
The theme of this year’s Session is ‘Galvanising multilateral efforts for poverty eradication, quality education, climate action, and inclusion’.
