Updates: SDGs in UN General Assembly, 74th Session

In 2015, the UN General Assembly had adopted 17 Global Goals or SDGs to be achieved by 2030.

With the election of the President on Tuesday, June 4, 2019, in New York the process for the 74th session of the General Assembly of the United Nations to be convened on 17th -30th September 2019 will start formally. In line with the geographical rotations, the President of the upcoming session is to be elected from the African nations for which the Federal Republic of Nigeria has nominated Mr Tijjani Muhammad Bande, its permanent representative to the United Nations. Although each geopolitical region is facing with its own peculiar problems in achieving the targets of SDGs, the developing nations have a wide range of issues from natural calamities to insurgency to terrorism to regional cooperation.
