Determined: Report of the Secretary-General on the Work of the Organization 2023
15 September 2023
In my Annual Report for 2023, I highlight inspiring examples of the impact of the United Nations work across the globe, based on our determination and belief that a better world is not only necessary, but within our grasp.
The past year was marked by increasingly complex crises for our world – poverty, inequality, hunger and rising unemployment; an uneven and uncertain global economic outlook; the escalating climate emergency; and conflicts, in particular the invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation. In every case, the poorest and most vulnerable people and communities are hit hardest.
