UN Week New York, September 23 – 27, 2019

Action for people and the planet

In September, world leaders gather at UN Headquarters in New York to signal how they will boost action to protect the planet and ensure the wellbeing of people, everywhere. Discussions and outcomes will seek to address climate change, accelerate progress on sustainable development and deliver results for people being left behind. Bringing together leaders from governments, private sector, civil society and international organizations — stakeholders will engage in a series of crucial meetings aimed at securing healthy, peaceful and prosperous lives for all, through strong multilateral collaboration.

UN Week

Action for people and the planet

Our country does not lag behind the ambitious countries working towards sustainable development and climate action. These topics were discussed at last week's meeting of the Minister of Environment and Physical Planning Naser Nuredini and the United Nations Resident Coordinator in the Republic of Northern Macedonia Rossana Dudzak. They both pledged to continue the successful cooperation in the field of environment, climate change, nature protection, floods, sustainable development, but also towards fulfilling the Government's efforts for UNESCO not to place the natural and cultural heritage of the Ohrid Region on the list of endangered World Heritage Sites.

In addition, with greater transparency and involvement of the NGO sector and citizens in the planning and implementation of actions, strong, sustainable, balanced and inclusive growth of the state will be motivated.

The impacts of climate change are accelerating, but with urgent and transformative action, it is still possible to limit the global average temperature rise to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, averting the most disastrous consequences, according to scientists. This Summit presents leaders from governments, the private sector and civil society with the opportunity to demonstrate the solutions they are pursuing to reduce emissions and build climate resilience and adaptation.

23 September 2019


The first-ever High-level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage will launch new efforts to provide access for all to affordable, inclusive and resilient health systems. The meeting will galvanize global commitments to ensure health for all, recognizing the strong links to climate action and the fact that health is a human right and a precondition, outcome and driver of sustainable development.

24-25 September 2019


Countries in 2015 unanimously adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development -- the most ambitious undertaking ever to transform our world to boost prosperity and ensure well-being for all while protecting the environment. The SDG Summit will allow world leaders and other stakeholders to demonstrate how they intend to accelerate action to transform our societies and economies, as we move towards the five-year anniversary of the Goals, with just over a decade left to the target date of 2030.

26 September 2019


Mobilizing sufficient financing remains a major challenge in realizing the 2030 Agenda, and investments that are critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals remain underfunded. Trade-restrictive measures have also accelerated, and debt risks are rising, hampering the ability of many countries to invest in the Sustainable Development Goals. The High-Level Dialogue on Financing for Development will bring together leaders from Government, business and the financial sector to help unlock the resources and partnerships needed and accelerate progress.

27 September 2019


Small island developing states are among the most vulnerable countries in the world. They face a unique set of issues relating to their small size, remoteness, narrow resource and export base, and exposure to external economic shocks and global environmental challenges, including the impacts of climate change. Five years after an ambitious agreement – the SAMOA Pathway -- to support sustainable development in small island developing states, the High-Level Review will discuss progress on combating the devastating impact of climate change, building economic and environmental resilience, and other challenges.
