Priorities: Building a safer and more secure world

1. Construct an enhanced partnership for peacekeeping, building on a renewed commitment to:

  • Share the burden and strongly collaborate with regional organizations;
  • Ensure that peacekeepers have the necessary capacities  and support to meet with increased speed and nimbleness the demands of increasingly complex operations;
  • Enhance the ability of the UN to provide civilian protection.

2. Build a more global, accountable and robust humanitarian system:

  • Enhancing collaboration among humanitarian organizations, particularly from the global South, at the local, national and regional levels, to strengthen community resilience and emergency response, and establishing a monitoring system to assess progress on the implementation of preparedness measures;
  • Building a shared international commitment to strengthen aid transparency and commitment, including by promoting a global declaration and agenda for humanitarian aid transparency and effectiveness;
  • Expanding support for pooled funding mechanisms, including the Central Emergency Response Fund, and identifying with stakeholders additional sources and methods of innovative financing for emergency preparedness;
  • Convening a world humanitarian summit to help share knowledge and establish common best practices among the wide spectrum of organizations involved in humanitarian action.

3. Revitalizing the global disarmament and non-proliferation agenda in the field of nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction as well as conventional arms, and strengthening the role of the UN in dealing with related emerging issues, including nuclear security and safety and arms trade, as well as outstanding regional issues.

4. Enhance coherence and scale up counter-terrorism efforts to better support Member States in their implementation of the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy and their own national counter-terrorism plans. This should include consideration by relevant intergovernmental bodies of creating a single UN counter-terrorism coordinator.

5. Address the heightened threat of organized crime, piracy and drug trafficking by mobilizing collective action and developing new tools and comprehensive regional and global strategies. This will require integrating rule of law, public health and human rights responses.
