Description

Informal Dialogue between Permanent Missions and the United Nations Secretariat, including but not limited to:

  • Informal briefing by the United Nations Secretariat on 'lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic' and on the progress made to improve the accessibility of the UNHQ premises for persons with disabilities

The General Assembly remains the chief deliberative, policy-making and representative organ of the United Nations, as well as the world's premier multilateral forum. As the President of the General Assembly has observed, a stronger United Nations requires a stronger General Assembly.

It is therefore incumbent on this Assembly to regularly examine itself, including its role and working methods, to ensure it is fit-for-purpose and capable of responding effectively, thoughtfully, and meaningfully to the most urgent global challenges.
