Preparing for the upcoming Paris Conference on climate, Ban went to the Blomstrandbreen glacier in the Arctic to see first-hand the changes since he last visited in 2009. Ban said "I am alarmed that there are so many cracks that will soon break. They are melting very rapidly." He said, I'm told by the scientists here, who have been researching for many, many decades, that global warming is happening much faster, and glaciers are getting thinner and thinner." After viewing the glacier, Ban said, ". It looks magnificent. But at the same time I am alarmed that there are so many cracks that will soon break. They are melting very rapidly, I fully agree with what scientists have been projecting. Unless we take action now we will have to regret. We have to keep global temperature rise below two degrees as soon as possible." Jan-Gunnar Winther, Director of Norwegian Polar Institute, said, "Glaciers on land are also a very visible example of the change in climate. Every year they are retreating and here in this area we have a lowering of the surface of approximately one meter per year, due to melting." Ban Ki-moon (UN Secretary-General) in Svalbard, Norway on climate change (7 July 2015) http://webtv.un.org/watch/ban-ki-moon-un-secretary-general-in-svalbard-norway-on-climate-change-7-july-2015/4344069677001 United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon visited Svalbard, a Norwegian Island in the high Arctic in a bid to raise awareness about the climate change affecting the region. video4344069677001 Wed, 08 Jul 2015 11:18:41 -0400 4344069677001 161588 United Nations Secretary-General Ban ki-moon is visiting Svalbard, a Norwegian Island in the high Arctic in a bid to raise awareness about the climate change affecting the region. Ban Ki-moon, embarked on 7 July 2015 on the research vessel « Lance » of the Norwegian Polar Institute (NPI) for a day-long journey to melting glaciers of Svalbard, region of the Arctic that is profoundly affected by the rising sea levels and global warming. Upon boarding the vessel, the Secretary-General met Johannes Breivik (13) and Erika Gjelsvik (13) from Mission Nansen, part of the four teenagers who had travelled to the North Pole earlier this year in order to create commitment to, and discussion of, climate issues. The youngsters have studied, and witnessed themselves the melting of the polar ice. The research vessel Lance was frozen in early January 2015, into the sea ice north of Svalbard and left to drift with the ocean current and wind for nearly six months. The mission objective was to study the effects of the new thin, first year, sea ice in the Arctic on energy flux, ice dynamics and the ice associated ecosystem, and local and global climate. There is almost no data about the winter climate in the Arctic Ocean. The Norwegian Polar Institute initiated this expedition, the "Norwegian Young Sea ICE Cruise" (N-ICE2015) with the collaboration from many international groups, including scientists from the Korean Polar Research Institute (KOPRI). With the aim to produce a new and comprehensive dataset on the new sea ice regime, enabling better projections of future global climate change.

This vision has remained the overarching development framework for the world for the past 15 years. With the MDGs approaching its deadline, the findings of the final report show that the MDGs produced the most successful anti-poverty movement in history and will serve as a springboard for the new sustainable development agenda to be adopted this year. Produced by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the annual assessment of global and regional progress towards the Goals, reflects the most comprehensive, up-to-date data compiled by over 28 UN and international agencies.
