On 22 September 2016, the President of the UN General Assembly will convene an one-day high-level segment of the General Assembly at the UN Headquarters to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Declaration on the Right to Development. The event takes place in the margins of the General Debate of the 71st Session of the General Assembly and includes Member States, non-governmental organizations, civil society, the private sector and academic institutions, in order to provide input.
